Hello! Welcome to my tumblr! I am a Nursing student and hope that my Nursing related posts will be helpful to all my fellow student nurses!

I am also a writer (not a pro) :) But poetry brings great joy and serenitity to my being. please see the page "writing/poems by trilife"

I am pretty much an open book to those who take the time to ask and care to know me. I am open-minded and feel caring for others ANYONE is a priority in my life.

I don't wanna just ramble about myself but please feel free to ask me anything.
I do not claim to be a person who "knows everything," But I have been delt a few jokers in my life so who know's maybe we can relate! ;0

Maternal hyperglycemia and ketosis are thus reflected in the fetal circulation. (Felig P: Body fuel metabolism and diabetes mellitus in pregnancy. Med Clin North Am 61(1):43, 1977)
