60 days I'm on my way.

Yes today is 60 days for me and I'm really thankful. The last month has be very hard. I lost my only employee that works in my department, so I have been maintaining a 156 bed Nursing Home by myself. I do have a candidate that may be starting soon, the sooner the better. I have been thinking about SR, but I have been so exhausted lately that I just crash in my bed, one time with all my clothes on, sober. Well just wanted to check in and say hello to the place that helped me get started on the right track.
Thank you.

Very impressive on 60 days, awesome. I'm equally impressed (and astonished) that you are maintaining 156 beds by yourself. Wow, I sure hope you get help soon, that must be exhausting.

Awesome Marcus. We started on the same day--today is now Day 61.

You should stop by the March 2015 class (since you started in that month)
