RN DeAnn McEwen on National Nurses United’s New and Kira Reginato on Caring for Parents
Shayne: “Well, Casey already this year there is so much going on in the news. Of course all kinds of political issues such as the “fiscal cliff,” the looming debt ceiling, and a range of other hot topics such as—hospitals working overtime to cut staffing and increase profits, storms like we’ve never seen before, world hunger, poverty, melting of the polar ice caps, unemployment and more. BUT the one bit of news that I find most important Casey and I think you will agree—Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy.”
Casey: “Oh Shayne I couldn’t agree with you more. That poor thing has gone through so much, and now this! I’m sure she and papa-to-be, Kanye West, are ecstatic—but this will be such a public 9-months for them. First the paparazzi will be looking to get the best photos of the “baby bump,” and then they may try to catch her on a private beach in her bikini.”
And so starts some advice for Kim and papa Kanye. We didn’t say good advice, but it is advice.
