Head Examination Needed Stat


Due to complex needs of multiple patients and a relative paucity of nurses willing to pitch in and give up their holidays, I'm working a double tonight. Not to worry though--the turkey is cooling, the potatoes are cooked and all that's left is the salad, dressing, pies and green beans to deal with.

Come next Friday, I can cash that plump(er) check and do a little holiday shopping.


Let's hope for a silent hospice schedule for the on call nurse come 8 PM tonight. I can use all the juju I can get.

You and I are both working this holiday. Ohhhhh, the life of the hospital worker. Okay, I'm wishing upon a start for a peace and serenity.

You are a heck of a woman Rudee. I used to agree to work lots of holidays for young moms to be off with their children, after mine got older. Lots of time we had to have holiday celebrations on different days. Happy and quiet night for you.

this is the first thanksgiving in years that i haven't worked. it feels odd.
