The Standard Examiner and One Republic!



So last Friday I was on the FRONT page of the Standard Examiner- for those not in the davis/weber area, its the newspaper that covers the area north of Salt Lake.
My patient's story was the reason. He has Spinal Muscular Atrophy- his ward and community are doing a fundraiser for him and his family....I just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time! JK! But really its not the best picture...I am wearing my glasses and my what I call, my "grandma" sweater...totally unprepared for a photoshoot! All my nurse friends out there, I was doing his GT cares without my gloves on, I know I know, but they are too big and get in the way, the photographer was taking pictures of me doing his cares. I realized, crap, I don't have my gloves on, and what if my boss or old nursing professors see this...so I said, "Oh, you can't use those ones because I don't have my gloves on." He honored my wish! So there's my one and only fame moment!

Why did One Republic come to Ogden, Utah? I asked myself this same question, but had a great time at their concert! Even though I felt like I was back in highschool because it was "The Event" for the highschoolers! A couple of girls who were down by the stage were doing dance moves that might have been related to the rain dance...I had a hard time keeping my eye on the concert! My favorite, and only songs I knew were "Stop and Stare" and "Apologize"....Thanks for having a birthday laina!
