I was trying to think of a good idea for a post yesterday morning as I was getting ready for work and BOOM! A Day in the Life of Me was born. Because all good ideas come while you are blow drying your hair right? So here it goes…
4:45 am: WAKE UP! My alarm is actually set for 4:15 but lets be honest, I hit the snooze a minimum of three times in the morning.
5:30 am: Showered, Hair and makeup done, about to pack my bag and head out the door. Fun fact- my scrub top is the last thing I put on as I am headed out the door because I am notorious for spilling something on my top.
5:50 am: This particular day I had to stop for gas.
6:00 am: Stop at McD’s for a Carmel Frapp.
6:25 am: Arrive at work and get report.
7:00 am: Start seeing my patients for first rounds.
9:00 am: Go on a trip to CT with one of my ventilated patients. Fun. NOT.
10:30 am: LUNCH TIME!!
11:30 am: Second rounds with my patients.
2:00 pm: Break time!! With a Diet Coke of course.
3:00 pm: Third rounds with my patients.
4:30 pm: Bored.
5:00 pm: Got called to no less than 3 code blues, had 2 stat bronchs, and a patient extubate theirself. Not the way I wanted to end my day but at least it went fast.
7:30 pm: FINALLY got to leave work!!! (I normally leave at 6:50)
7:45 pm: Hit up Mex-to-Go on the way home.
8:20 pm: FINALLY home!!
8:45: On the couch about to watch Grey’s Anatomy and eat my din!!!
10:00 pm: Face is washed and about to go to bed!!
And that pretty much sums up my day!!!
