Change is good....coconut oil is almost even better!

Wow, since I last blogged in March I have recovered physically (never will emotionally) from my 21 days in Haiti, packed up yet again (4 times in 5 months is too much), moved back to my awesome tiny home in Nashville, started my new job at the most amazing office (Cool Springs Family Medicine), and moved my first born back into the nest with us again!! Not to mention the many other happenings in our otherwise gypsy life! As I sit here during the most amazingly beautiful day I believe this year, I started reflecting on the enormous responsibility of my new life as a nurse practitioner.

My new job and one that incredibly enough I found on Craigslist of all places is ideal for me. I have landed a sweet deal in the most balanced mixture of traditional and integrative medicine of any place I have ever known! Cool Springs Family Medicine is a family medicine practice that Dr. Dan Kalb owns and runs as a wellness center. Daily I go to him and voice how stupid I feel when these patients arrive and want to treat some illness with herbs, supplements or one of many natural remedies that have been used for centuries! I am learning daily that our bodies are chronically depleted of the vital nutrients and vitamins we need to live the life that God created us to live!!

Following is a fraction of what I have learned in the 3 short months of practicing a balance of traditional/integrative medicine:

1. Garlic oil, oil of oregano and colloidal silver is an amazing cure for an otherwise not severe ear infection!! Who knew? Not me and apparently not my high priced school that educated me for 3 years!

2. Candida is the root of all evil in our gut! Get rid of the candida, get rid of the symptoms!!

3. 99.9% if not 100% of our diseases (illnesses) we have stem from the gut....leaky gut is fixable and the difference I have seen in patients lives with a GOOD Pro-biotic (at least 20 billion flora) and digestive enzymes is mind blowing!

4. Food sensitivity testing is a sure fire way to get people to realize that what they are eating is sure enough causing their symptoms of bloating, headaches, eczema, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, heartburn and the list goes on and on and on!!

5. Adrenal Fatigue is a term that even though never once mentioned in NP school (and apparently MD school as well), is a very real thing and most likely the cause of many peoples thyroid problems....fix the adrenal glands (the glands that make cortisol) and the symptoms of hypothyroidism lessen if not resolve completely.

6. It takes longer than 20 minutes to start to find the "root" of the symptoms, just treating the symptoms has never and will never "cure" the problem! Most issues dont'need a pill to fix, they need a LIFESTYLE CHANGE and determination from the patient (and practitioner) to regain their health and vitality!!

7. One can instantly be humbled (and the reality of our job realized in an instant) when a brand new patient I referred to ENT, because "something just didn't look right" for a swollen left tonsil x one month: and the ENT calls and faxes the report over after having just removed an "invasive squamous cell carcinoma" of the tonsil! A 6 cm cancer!! The need to find an oncologist was not on my list of differentials nor the patient's when they came to see me for answers! I didn't know what was wrong, I simply thank God knew that I didn't need to be messing around with antibiotics (or alternative treatments) for months at a time....God covered me! I am still rattled over this case daily!!

8. Coconut oil is good for just about any skin an anti-fungal it helps with candida as well!

9. Vitamin D deficiency is a chronic problem.....

10. Dr. Ward was right when he would tell me "you can't afford NOT to Dani" when I would complain in years past that I "can't afford to take .....supplements, vitamins".....oh the beauty of hindsight!!

11. Lymes Disease is real and a booger to diagnose and treat!!

12. Hormones, hormones, hormones are constantly changing and constantly needing to be tweaked!! But Bio-Identical Hormones are the cure for most women and men!

13. When the doctors in the ER fired me on the spot and told me I was taking too long to learn the ER.....that was in reality a blessing God handed me!! Who knew at the time? Not me that's for sure! But I sure do now, and thank God everyday for getting me out of that ER when he did and into a place that is 100x harder to learn, but actually making a difference in people lives everyday!!

I am blessed beyond belief to find my niche in life! Not once, but twice in my life!! God is good, even when I haven't been that's for darn sure!

Onward~ Dani

I have taken a week to recoup, job search and simply zone out since I have been home from my 21 days in Haiti!! I have had an adjustment period that I didn't expect. I didn't expect to miss Haiti! I find myself missing the non-stop uncertainty of providing healthcare in such an unstable environment! I am already making plans to find a way back to continue what I started in Haiti....with that said, I am gathering supplies from anyone interested in helping me to send to the Maternity Clinic that Medical Missionaries operates in Thomassique. Before I left I met with the midwife assistant who was trained by the incredible organization Midwives for Haiti and we discussed the needs and wants of the clinic. As we compared our thoughts, it was comforting to know that her wants and desires for the clinic were exactly the same as mine! They are in need of basic supplies. The mothers are instructed to bring their own sheets, their own diapers, blankets, towels etc. Anything that is needed for labor and post partum. Many mothers arrive at the clinic with nothing but maybe a bucket (to use as a place to urinate etc.) and some food to eat.

It was clearly evident the moment I had my first delivery that there was a need to have basic supplies donated and kept stocked. The clinic has between 40-50 deliveries a month, therefore the need is continual and vast!! We discussed ways to keep a list and inventory updated so that hopefully, there is always an inventory of BASIC supplies! I am not talking about anything fancy here.

So, with that said: I am appealing to anyone that can to help me gather donations for this much needed cause! There is no mail service in Thomassique, therefore anything collected will have to be sent to Manassas VA to the Medical Missionary office and shipped from there. The two American Fellows will be returning in April to the states and have agreed to take some supplies back with them to Haiti until a sea container can arrive in a few months with the rest of the shipment!

I am including a list of what is needed. I have one friend (thanks Diana) who has a group of women in the Murray area making some blankets etc.!!

Supplies needed on a daily basis:
1. Receiving Blankets (all sizes needed)
2. NB diapers both cloth with pins or velcro and disposable
3. Sanitary pads for mom after delivery
4. Poise disposable panties (I had one in a package and that was it) or some kind of PP panty
5. Chuck's disposable pads used in L/D etc. for the delivery table and PP bed
6. Formula for the babies that can't/won't nurse or for other reasons
7. Towels, washcloths etc. for cleaning the NB after delivery
8. Twin sheets
9. NB outfits/hats/socks
10. I would love to make up NB packets with a blanket, diapers, outfit

These are the basic mother/baby needs of the clinic. There are other medical supply needs that I am working on.

If anyone wants to help me gather donations, pick up donations or make a donation (no donation is too small) just email me and we can get the ball rolling!!

My goal is to ship out the supplies by April 8 to VA! So my time on the first shipment is limited, but their will be many more shipments needed on a continual basis!!

Thanks for helping me with the much needed mission! We are so blessed in the US to have the luxury of all we have! And once again....I will never make a dent...but I am determined to make a difference!!

Helping Haiti 2010

February 11, 2010

Dear Family and Friends,

So, here I sit fighting with those darn space saver bags (I don’t think they are working for me) to attempt to take as much as possible in one backpack for 21 days…I have had an emotional week to say the least. I can’t tell you how much your emails, Facebook messages, phone calls, text messages, visits have meant to me as I prepare for this journey. I am not the first person, nor will I be the last person to listen to God about a huge decision in one’s life. But, your support has meant the world to me and made this decision (and trust me, it is one I have doubted on many occasions the past 3 weeks) manageable. The devil has stepped in to derail this trip on every occasion he can. From dog sitting, to child sitting, and beyond he has attempted to block this trip. But, as my friend Evie told me this morning, “when you are in the middle of God’s will, nothing will stop you you”! I am counting on that….because for the first time in my life (other than when I accepted Christ), I followed the conviction on my heart and doors opened…even the ones the devil attempted to kick shut. So, unless something traumatic happens I will be on the 5:59 am flight from Barkley Regional to Chicago and beyond Saturday February 13, 2010!! My oldest and dearest friends Trish, Margo and Kim are taking me to the airport Saturday. Then my sweet cousin Vickie in VA is letting me spend 2 nights with her and taking me to the airport at 3 am on February 15!

Events of the Week:

1. I taught a donation only Haiti Relief Yoga class at True North Yoga on Monday night! We had 21 students show up in the snow and donated $405.00 towards my trip!! I was humbled, and overwhelmed! I had not taught a class in several years and simply winged it! It was one jumbled mess, but we laughed our way through it!

2. I had an unexpected interview with WPSD News Channel 6 as I was loading up the medications/supplies that Western Baptist Hospital so generously donated to this trip. I have yet to see it, but heard it was short and sweet and got the point across!!

3. Ella and I shipped almost 300lbs (11 boxes) of what WBH donated plus Dr. Pete Ward’s donations from the Fed-Ex office on Monday. Shipping was $234.00, my Sunday school class had taken up an offering on Sunday….$226.00 was given! How good is God?

4. As of today we have had a total of $4,233.00 in the US Bank Haiti Relief fund!! Can you believe how people have stepped up, one donation at a time from $5.00 to $1,000.00!! God has blessed with being able to get this trip financed and buy supplies, pay for shipping costs and whatever is needed to get the job done! I can’t thank each and everyone of you enough for making this possible! My goal was $5,000.00 in donations! Who knows, when I come home, I may have reached my goal! Donations are still being accepted.

5. Please pray that a job will open up for me when I am away. I have sent out many resume’s and praying that this trip will not hinder my job search in any way! My prayer is that when I return, I have emails that want me to come interview!

I may not be able to send news letters from Haiti, but if you sign up to follow the blog (it takes all of 5 minutes) then you can see the pictures and read the stories I have to tell the next 3 weeks. I am hoping to be able to blog from my phone!

Helping Haiti 2010

Welcome to the first newsletter of Helping Haiti 2010! 
In order to better keep in touch with my friends, family and all that are supporting me daily with prayers and donations I decided to create a simple newsletter to keep everyone updated on the events of my upcoming journey.

Events of today:

1. Confirmation email from Dr. Irwin of of my acceptance to be on the third/fourth team to head down to Haiti to offer healthcare to the Haitians. I will be traveling with an ER MD, Pedes NP, CRNA, General surgeon, and a PhD who is on the board of directors and is our team leader. It is a small team. I hope it isn't an indication of decreasing support. Please pray that our hearts and hands are blessed to do the work needed!

2. Western Baptist Hospital donated over $ 3,000.00 worth of medications on Dr. Irwin’s “wish list” as well as gloves, speculums, light sources for speculums, lubrication etc!! (I am a nurse midwife you know, so I am pushing for gynecological supplies)!

3. My tickets were bought and I am flying out of Paducah. Given the amount of supplies and the fact that I will be exhausted, I thought is best to use Barkley Regional instead of Nashville. I am attaching the flight itinerary for those of you who have this trip on your prayer lists. There is a day in between each flight, due to the fact that I couldn't get the flights lined up with Paducah.

Sat. Feb 13 
Depart 05:59 am Paducah
Arrive: 2:04 pm Dulles

Mon. Feb 15
Depart 06:00 am Dulles
Arrive 1:10 pm Santo Domingo

Mon. March 8
Depart 4:50 pm Santo Domingo
Arrive 11:15 pm Dulles

Tues. March 9
Depart 09:27 am Dulles
Arrive 02;37 pm Paducah

4. As of today we have over $2,100.00 in monetary donations to be used for supplies for this medical mission trip!! I will use some of that money to buy the batteries needed for the light sources, Deet, water purification systems, flashlights , food, and anything else I am told is needed! Thank you so much for your help! Any amount of donation can help make a HUGE difference in the mission of slowly beginning to rebuild the lives and communities of the Haitian men, women and children. Donations can also be mailed to the address at the end of this newsletter.

Heading to Haiti: February 15, 2010 Please Pray

Dear Friends Family January 20, 2010

I am the passenger in my vehicle as we are speeding down I-24 toward Congressman’s Whitfield’s office to see Andrea P’Pool who is my angel at this point and making sure my passport (that had my married name on it) is taken care of and issued in 2 days. It could have been issued yesterday if I could have driven to Chicago/New Orleans (unfortunately, I had to be home for EK at 3 pm, therefore traveling to Chicago or New Orleans was out of the question)! I feel the need to share what only God could do the past couple of days of my life. Doors and opportunities have simply lined up, ready for me to step through.

As most of you know I lost my job last Wednesday unexpectedly. One day prior to my dismissal, an earthquake devastated Haiti. It was almost immediate that while in my pity party for approximately 24 hours, I felt God tugging on my heart to “get up and go to Haiti”. Just so happens that during a women’s conference this weekend at Heartland Worship Center I felt an overwhelming calling to do as I was being instructed. Not an easy pill for me to swallow, as many of you know: I am not famous for obeying God’s clearly obvious signs he gives me!! I wrangled with the idea and how on earth I could afford it, the children, the student loans that are scheduled to begin February 1, the bills, the inconvenience of leaving, worrying about EK and if she might be ok with me gone, the now necessary job search I must do…..but as God would have it, he gave me one more chance Monday morning at 7:30 am to commit to doing something for others, instead of whining about how unfair my situation was.

The details of what I was doing and whom I was meeting with are not important (actually they are, but in the essence of time, I will leave that information for another time). The bottom line is that after discussing my situation professionally and putting feelers out for a job; I mentioned to Bonnie Schrock, whom if you don’t already know is VP of Patient Services at Western Baptist Hospital here in Paducah, KY; that I have been convicted to go to Haiti but couldn’t figure out how to afford it or even whom to contact……

Fast forward a few hours; my email alerts me that I have an email and an anonymous sponsor is underwriting the cost of the airline tickets to get me to Haiti (no matter how long it takes to get me over there), and on top of that WBH is donating supplies needed for the specific group I would be traveling with. All I needed to do was find a medical team to take me!! If you don’t think God moves mountains….all I did was mention to Bonnie my conviction….God took over from there.

Finding a medical mission team has been extremely difficult that could use me. Who would have imagined? I have now been confirmed to leave with Medical Missionaries. Please see the link:

Dr. Irwin confirmed this morning that I will be leaving February 15 and returning around March 8/9. I don’t have the logistics yet. I will be doing whatever is needed. A surgical team left today.

Therefore in the spirit of giving, U.S. Bank and Susan Ybarzabal have helped me set up an account earmarked only for Haiti Relief. If anyone is interested in donating (no donation is too small), I will have the contact information listed below. Be aware, that the donation is NOT tax deductible, because I am not a (not-for profit organization). Actually I am, but not to the government!! HA! Maybe that is in my future, to run a non-profit relief agency?!….ALL donations will be used for whatever the Medical Missionaries team tells me we need for the Haitians. I wanted to set something up that has a paper trail if anyone ever wanted to see my receipts or donations. If you have a substantial donation and need a tax deduction, then I would suggest donating to Medical Missionaries (the information is on their website) or to the agency of your choice.

I am scared, uncertain, not sure I have the proper clothing and shoes, broken hearted before I even get there (praying to God that he DOES NOT convict me to bring home 4 Haitian babies (one on each hip, back and front)!!!, excited, wondering what in the world have I gotten myself into and overwhelmed by God’s power to open up doors that I am used to kicking in!! How much easier is it when you do as instructed, instead of following your own wants and desires. I have been humbled twice in 7 days. Once in humiliation, the other in God’s Grace…I don’t have to tell you which one is more gratifying. It took me 44 years to listen to the whispers in my heart….

The fury has begun, what I (God has) have accomplished in 48 hours in incredible! Please pray that the date does not change and we are allowed to enter Haiti as planned. I am in the process of taking care of my personal affairs (in case the unthinkable happens). That has been an eye opening experience.

My goal is to raise $5,000 for extra supplies, socks, shoes whatever it is I am told is needed. If you know me at all, you know I am like a dog with a bone when my mind gets set to something!! True North Yoga is going to help me with fundraising as well (check out their Face book page for details).

Below is the contact information for donations. Please don’t’ hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Rising from the Ashes.....Once again!!

January 13, 2010

So, as of 1700 this afternoon I am no longer employed as an ER NP. I was in the middle of seeing patients when asked to go to the lounge with two of the doctors. I was released of my duties as an NP. I must say I was shocked that after only 33 shifts a decision like that could be fairly made. It seems that I am the only person that has been hired as a mid-level in the ER who has not done clinical rotations of some sort in the ER. My CNM/FNP background did not train me for the acute care and more detailed knowledge needed apparently to be able to jump right in without asking questions and asking for help (which I was specifically told the first day on the job was something to never be scared to do: asking questions was encouraged). I specifically asked if I had any patient complaints against me. Apparently not. I was told (in the letter that had been prepared for me) that the partners felt that the “amount of time it will take for you to become familiar with patient care in the Emergency Department, and to function at a level commensurate with the other mid-levels will be too lengthy to allow continued affiliation with our group.” I was told that if it took 3 months, 6 months or a year to train me, that was too much time and they simply could not do that.

I prayed the entire time for God to keep the tears from flowing. As the doctor was talking: I was thinking about the 2,500 monthly in student loans that begins in February, the rent I am paying currently, the bills due, the humiliation of having to tell everyone I was fired from a job after 33 days for not learning the skills as quickly as the partners desired (or at least that is what they told me, although I wonder if there is something more they aren’t saying). Somehow God gave me the strength to say “you have made a huge mistake”, “I love this job, and was in this career for the long haul, I turned down two job offers with contracts to move to Paducah to challenge myself in a field I was not trained for.” I was told immediately by one of the physicians that “no one loves their job in the ER”, people just do it because they have to. I completely disagreed and shared that I loved the pace (and was told maybe that’s what I loved, but again no one loves their job in the ER)!! WRONG, I told them that I am too old to work in a job that I don’t love. I did love this job and felt that I was never properly trained (2 hours of following another NP doesn’t count as orientation) and therefore I was at a disadvantage from the beginning. Not to mention that I came in with Women’s Health and Family Practice as my background. They understood that, but felt that with the understaffing issues that they currently battle with, I was basically only making things harder for the doctors (by being a new graduate and needing to ask questions, that I thought would make for good patient care) especially when there would only be one doctor and me scheduled. I was dumbfounded! And am still in shock…for many reasons!

I had been able to develop my own little niche of women’s health in the ER. It was often that when a women’s health issue came through I got the chart handed to me. And I loved treating those patients. And the patients loved me. I was thrilled to get to humanize the ER for a very short time indeed. I am finding comfort in the fact that even though I might have been fired today, I know for a fact (from patient’s mouths as well as from other nurses telling me) that I made a difference in the lives of my patients. Maybe I am not cynical enough for the ER, maybe I fall into some of the frequent flyers traps of wanting more pain meds, maybe I hugged a patient on occasion, or asked too many questions to the RN’s making me look like I didn’t know what I was doing (I am a new graduate after all, maybe I was to “touchy, feely” with the staff my first week on the job (touching is not encouraged, I was once told to stand “2” floor squares away from a doctor), I never missed a shift, came early, stayed late and spent hours putting together a “cheat sheet” of ER notes so that I could quickly try to know what 5 different doctors might want to order for different ER complaints (that work won’t be in vain, I will make sure students, new NP’s, and myself have that information to use in the future).

I have to believe that God is telling me loud and clear to take this time to spend with my daughter. Two days ago she somehow got confused when walking out of the house after dropping off her things from school (like she has done since November). Instead of turning left off of our porch to walk 3 doors down to the babysitter (and the woman that has been like a mother to me for years): she somehow turned right and began walking, she became disoriented and ended up near the middle school (about a ¼ mile away), phone in her pocket (that was dead), she was scared and trying to get to a gas station she saw: when a man and his family stopped to ask her what she was doing walking (in the freezing cold). She was apparently scared and disoriented and he told her that he was a firefighter and youth counselor, and thought he should call the police to help her get home. EK says she got scared and got into the car with him and his family and they brought her home. The babysitter was heading next door to get her because she wasn’t answering her phone and as she was walking out the door, EK pulled up in the car with a stranger!! He told her what had transpired and how worried he was for EK and “something didn’t seem right”. He swore he didn’t harm her and brought her straight home (she did remember where she lived). Apparently EK was so nervous, she was soaking wet and exhausted. She had her bag of books with her she was taking to the sitter. What happened to her? How could she not make it 3 doors down? I have been horrified and had her immediately (as soon as I found out about the incident) taken to the ER to be evaluated for any sexual assault or drugs in her system. Everything was clean. No signs of assault. Even if the man who brought her home didn’t harm her, who knew what happened to her from our porch to the moment she was picked up? I am devastated; she has been trained not to ever get in the car with a stranger. She said when he said he needed to call the police, she thought it safer to go with him and his family than to have the police involved!! I have cried more tears the last two days than I have cried in a long time. Anyone who knows my history with EK (read the Marching to the Beat of a Different Drummer blog) knows I have fought for her safety and security and advancement in school since she was in first grade. She was given a bit of freedom in the afternoons before she would walk to the sitter (the sitter had just spoken to her on the phone), to try to increase her self- confidence. Now, we are back to square one. Did she have a seizure, did she just get confused and not have the maturity to turn around as soon as she discovered she was heading in the wrong direction, is there an underlying process we aren’t aware of? Whatever happened Monday may never be known, but the first person I called tonight while walking out of the hospital with my tail tucked and humiliated was my childhood friend Margo who shared with me that possibly this is God’s way of telling me that the 1pm-1am shift is not conducive to raising a daughter that “Marches to the Beat of a Different Drummer”….maybe she needs her mom on a more consistent schedule. She showed up here tonight and listened as I cried about my pity party (still wearing my scrubs and nametag from the hospital). The she out of the blue said, “Dani, it could be so much worse”….we could be searching for my baby tonight, we could be in the hospital with her, or worse we could be at the funeral home tonight having visitation for her very short life. If that doesn’t bring my “firing “ into perspective, nothing does….

Therefore, 2010 has not at all been what I had planned (is it ever what we planned?), I have had some rather disturbing personal issues come to light, relationship issues (things are on the upswing in that department), moved twice (to have a better place for me to sleep when coming in from the ER (HA!), car broken down, favorite Uncle died this week, grandmother had a stroke (light one) this week, daughter disoriented this week and riding around with a strange family (my family is strange enough, no need to find another one to ride around with), got fired today….but guess what? My baby girl is lying beside me (snoring none the less) while I am listening to Nancy Grace, my cat is on the foot of the bed and my dog is on the couch snoring as well….my friends have called, come over, my dad and stepmom brought pizza tonight and two bottles of wine (still unopened)….and I am still alive (I know I am because I have been sobbing and my heart hurts as I type this). Damaged goods (yes Ralph it’s true), bruise, ego destroyed, confidence shaken, questioning my education, my decision to take on a challenge people told me I was crazy to do, my decision to move home and wondering what the silver lining is in the events of this week…..

Unbeknownst to me as to why, I posted this quote this morning on my Face book page: maybe a God thing huh?
