Never got the nap... negative
Did get off shift on time... positive
Did get to eat with mom and granny... positive
There was a call at 0145 this morning... sledding accident. The girl had a bad femur fracture and it was not accessible by ambulance. I heard the call. I knew I had to be at work today, but I couldn't leave the on duty crew to deal with it. They were over 20 miles away and I was 7 miles away. I went. It was bad. She was drunk. She was hysterical. Her friends were drunk. Her friends were distracting. It was hard to deal with at this point 0230 in the morning.
Long story short... I got the patient air evacuated and got back in bed by about 0445. I couldn't sleep. And here I am at work starting at 0900. I'm here until 2100 (9PM). I caught up on my paperwork and was just getting ready to lay down for a nap and off we went to yet another call. My wonderful partner did all the work. Bless her.
I'll stop griping now. Still ready for that nap.
