If you don’t hear synth horns, what have you been doing since the mid 80s?
Yeah, so, the universe is mad at me.
In the last two weeks I have worked my usual: 1430-2300 Monday through Friday.
Laser call Saturday/Sunday 0700-1900.
Night call Saturday/Sunday 1900-0700.
And night call Monday-Friday 2300-0700.
Plus assorted meetings.
This is all completely normal.
And is changing after Friday.
I’m a workaholic.
Ever since I agreed to change my job role to that of the night call nurse, the universe has been throwing some serious shade my way.
Sorry, whoever I happen to be working or on call with.
Sunday was no exception.
I had an unusual call case in the middle of the afternoon,
The normal weekend team was busy.
And this was an emergency.
4 hours later, I was home.
At then the tech and I were called in for a big belly case.
The usual: perforation somewhere, tanking blood pressure.
And then the universe threw us a dislocated body part that does not usually dislocate.
And me having a car appointment at 0700.
I could have cried.
I am pretty sure the CRNA did.
And after that I had a meeting at 1100.
Do you think the universe knows that my life is changing in 4 days?
I think she does.
And I think she is PISSED.
Sometimes change is good, you know?
