Ahhh, exhaustion

I’m so glad I have the next two days off.  This was my third day in a row, so like 32 out of the past 50 hours I have worked.  I’m exhausted.  The three days actually have been pretty good.  Yesterday and today we had student nurses on the floor, which takes some of the stress off.  Today at 3:00 all of the students left, and all hell broke loose.  I got one admit, raising me to five patients.  When she got on the floor her family was already mad and anxious.  They had just had a death in the family, so they were all on edge and taking everything a little over the top, understandably.  Then an hour later I was informed that I was getting another new patient.  Thankfully she still hadn’t shown up when I left.  One of my patients was VERY sick and his family was very anxious, but nice.  Plus I had another patient pacing the halls and not happy with me because he wanted to go home, but needed cardiology to sign off on him.

So, I’m staying home in my PJs for the weeend, don’t try to call me in to work!

    Have a great weekend! Put you feet up! I believe there’s some football to watch (preferably without snacks).
