New Idea...

I am bored the kids are having a rest, so I thought I would start a new word of the day type thing, but I will only use nursing or medical words or conditions etc. I will refer to Stedmans Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing.

The page I opened was v's, so the condition I learnt today was:

Vernet syndrome: A syndrome characterized by paralysis of the motor components of the glossopharyngeal, vagus, and accessory cranial nerves as they lie in the posterior fossa; it is most commonly the result of head injury.

Cool idea about the word of the day thing! Might have to join that bandwagon as it could only be helpful, right!?

Hope the kids are feeling better! It's pitiful when they're sick, after being used to all their energy.

Good for you passing your most recent practical assessment. My brain is so fried I can't even think of the word for what it really is! Ugh!

Yeah, I thought it would be fun but also helpful. Its can only be a good thing anyway.

Sophie is much better, thankyou :)
