I'm Alive!

   I'm almost done with 3 out of 4 weeks of my SICU sub-I, and I'm alive!  I have been working 24 hour shifts every three days (which actually end up being more like 30 hour shifts with rounds and stuff), and 12 hour shifts on the days in between.  This all works out to be about 85 hours per week - and I'm exhausted!   I'm really enjoying it though, much more than I ever anticipated.  I've witnessed some pretty crazy stuff, but unfortunately, I have no energy to blog about it.  Maybe later.

Baby Z perfectly demonstrating how I feel these days


  1. Pretty cat - and oh god that seems intense. Someone needs a drink when they don't have to go into the hospital an hour later! :)

  2. omg! those hours sound really intense! sounds like you're getting through it though...
