Home again, home again, jiggity-jig!

A long 12-hour shift.  Made even longer by a co-worker not showing up for work and having to stay an extra hour. Made more embarrassing by having to give report to MY SUPERVISOR and realizing that I really gave a horrible report!  Made better by stopping and talking to the one intensivist that really still intimidates me and having him say “keep up the good work” and that he sees that I’m getting better 🙂

Eat breakfast…starving!

Sleep for 6 and 1/2 hours, shower and make dinner.

Back to work 7p-11p only (an 8-hour person needed to switch a day and since I work 12 hours I still needed to come in for the first four hours of the shift that she was covering 11p-7a).

I was in the ED again…SUPER busy…on level one where additional staff is needed to help get the people through faster.  Lots of starting IVs and giving meds.  The shift flies by and then it’s time to go home!  What a nice feeling.

So although it kind of felt like a waste to have to go in for only four hours it went by fast.

Felt SO weird to be driving home so late at night.

But felt SO good to be able to come home and go right to bed with my sweetie!

  1. A compliment from an intensivist is hard to come by. Good for you Kaye!
