The BF rocks. I passed TNCC (Trauma Nursing Core Course) today, thus completing my ER nursing trifecta (PALS, ACLS, and TNCC). He withheld the brutality of the course from me beforehand (imagine calculus---or, for those who LIKE calculus and find it easy, substitute some subject that is fairly complicated for you---for a day and a half followed by a tricky test and a practical exam) lest I become discouraged. I'm a perfectionist with a good memory so I read most of the book (!) and did fine, but I was a little worse for the wear, especially after getting up when I'm normally getting off work and going to bed. So he brought me flowers and chocolate. And told me I'm a good nurse and people like me.
