One night of work in…and it wasn’t too bad. I had two ICU patients from 7 pm to 11 pm and then I was the monitor watcher/secretary from 11 pm to 7 am.
I was happy to sit and watch the monitors because I was ready for a break from all the busy nights I’ve been having, but then halfway through the night…I got SO tired…and a little bored. There is just no happy medium! I guess it just proves to me that I can be stressed out when it’s too busy AND when it’s too slow 🙂 However, I have to say, watching the clock SLOWLY tick by was driving me crazy! I *think* I’ll take being really busy over being too slow! Someone please remind me that I said this the next time I complain that it’s TOO busy!
Anyways, I survived with the help of a No-Doze and now I’m home. A little bit of a winter-y mix of snow and sleet/rain — made for some slippery roads on the way home…so glad to pull up safe in the garage.
Only one more night on and then THREE off 🙂
