puddle of blood

I worked a swing shift last night ... i did not like it so much.
I was tired and disoriented and hung over - my own fault, i know. It was busy, and Kimmy, Mike, and myself were the only experienced techs on the floor. Mike was in surgery, Kim was supervising, and i was running my ass off. It was nice to see the grave techs showing up.

I also ended up staying almost two hours late. At midnight, I volunteered myself to assist in surgery, mostly because I wanted to get off the floor, and I need more surgical experience. It was fun - a bloat/splenectomy on a sweet german shepard with SD and Levi. HUGE spleen. it was neat. By the time I got the dog recovered, it had gotten really busy and there was another surgery to be done. So I cleaned up the bloody mess in surgery (and in the process accidentally stuck my hand in a puddle of cold blood - that was gross), did some outpatient treatments, and got out just before four.

I'm back to work tonight, but I'm a supervisor and it's grave, so it'll be a little more comfortable.

With any luck, I'll see Michael before work. I finally reached him yesterday, grouched at him a bit for being unreachable, and now all is well.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…

  • everything came together perfectly

    I'm in Nashville. In my beautiful house, with all my wonderful animals, and i'm in love with the man sleeping with his head on my lap right now.…
