I have been on vacation since last Friday.
I was supposed to be at AORN.
Which was cancelled/taken virtual on Friday.
I did the three days of virtual conference.
I had someone say that they saw my poster.
This made me happy.
I absolutely kept all the days I had off.
This will help alleviate pressure off my PTO balance.
When I took a week off in April I complained about how bored I was.
Nope, not going to whine about how bored I am now.
I am reading reports and watching the case and death count go up.
ICUs are full.
Hospitals are full.
Hospitals can’t get workers.
Do I feel guilty that I am on vacation, taking care of all that I did not do all of last year?
Do I still do the instrument tracking report daily for my manager?
Why not, it only takes me 5 minutes.
While I am there do I take a look at the hospital beds in the system that have covid patients in them?
I’m not even there and I can tell it is exploding in my area.
This does not bode well.
Do I go places without my mask?
I never stopped wearing a mask.
One thing I did stop giving a fuck about is saving starker news stories to my covid Pinterest page.
Because of course I have one of those.
And I hope people who are do not believe in covid or are unvaccinated for whatever reason are reading them.
