Well, a nippy 57 degrees out there. Coffee's on, and I'm going to yump into some jeans shortly and head out to do an admit. I'm off the weekend, but volunteered to do this admit. He's the hubby of one of my pts., whom he tearfully had to place in a NH a week ago after he found out he had a very VERY bad heart valve and his doc scheduled him for ASAP open heart surgery. All this came out of the blue for him, and he was in a whirlwind of decision-making. Poor guy. I was worried about him with this surgery as I know how worried he was about his little wife... putting her in a NH about broke his heart.
But he made it, and now I'm going out to admit him to HH this am.
Hey.. remember last weekend when I was wishing I had an extra day off? Well, I found out yesterday that I'm not scheduled to work this Monday as it's Labor Day, and I had worked the previous 2 holidays! Wooot! So what did I do? Volunteered to work it anyway, since I had already just ASSUMED that I WAS !
But I told them to give me a "light" load that day... 4-5 patients. That will be do-able.
Well, haven't read yesterday's thread yet, heard anything from ROY ???
We didn't get near the rain and wind they said we would initially.. it stayed east of us, and Adam got it ALL !!! He said parts of Norfolk and Va. Beach were up to their knees in water and he saw several SUVs in some underpasses that were totally submerged with only the roof racks peeping out... :uhoh21: He was fortunate in not losing power.. hundreds of thousands all around him did.
OK.. better go have some coffee. NOW.
