A Title Would Require Some Sort of Brainpower

I’ve gotta teach myself to schedule these posts ahead of time. It’s just not happening tonight.

Today I found out that five of our patients died over the weekend. I took care of seven patients. I barely sat down for twelve hours. Can you forgive me this lazy post?

Lately I feel like I’m always complaining about how tired I am because of work. Yeah, I am exhausted after these long days, but ordinarily I wouldn’t be trying to blog on days like this. It’s just because I’m forcing myself to write every day this month that you are gaining insight into this side of me. I apologize if it is boring or annoying, but just bear with me for another week. Now if you’ll excuse me I have some sleeping to do.

    From Megan:

    I love hearing from you every day, even if it’s just these little snippets. This exhaustion is probably good training for motherhood. (At least, that’s what I tell myself when I can’t sleep!)

    From Mom:

    Sorry about your patients! 12 hours on top of that sounds exhausting. I like that you are “forced” to write every day because I like hearing about your life–the good and the bad. You are never annoying or boring. And even in the worst of things, a glimmer of your wit shines through. And just think–you’re helping keep Megan company, poor thing that’s all alone (except for Peter, of course) in faraway Scotland. What a good deed!

    Well on a totally unrelated note, I love your walls!!

    From Krista:

    It is emotionally and physically draining to work with people who are terminally ill. Of course you will be tired and maybe a bit grumpy!

    From Rae:

    I can only imagine how draining that is.

    Perhaps someday you will be most glad for these posts since they will remind you of what your life was really like, not just the moments you felt well enough to blog “interesting” posts. At least that is what I tell myself as I try to be more like you. :-)
