Same Department - Different Clinic (s)

Yesterday I ended up working a 6 hour day, and hate to admit how exhausted I was when I finished.  However the good news was that I was fine during the actual work ... so I shall focus on that good news.  One of the physiologists I work with is visiting his family in India, so I have less clinics for a couple of weeks.  however yesterday I was asked by another physiologist if I could be her nurse/charperone for 2 different clinics with her.  So, that was my yesterday ... rather than urology (as normal). I spent the morning working with oesophageal testing. and the afternoon working with lower bowels.  So, similar, but different.

Today I worked, which is also unusual as it's a Friday, but the clinic was going really well, until I had one patient fall over a bin  (and they are almost 3' high) ... his excuse was that he was wearing a mask which meant he couldn't see where he was going.  So, what had he been doing for the last 22 months?

Now here and its raining (so no walking), so I doing some LJ stuff, and maybe even catch up on the Snowflake challenge.  But before I do that ...

6. How often do you binge-watch TV shows?
I tend to watch & re-watxh DVD's so it's quite often that I watch through a full series.

7. Have you ever saved an animal's life? How about a person's life?
I don't know if it counts, but when DJ caught strangles I spent the worst day of his illness standing with him holding a buket of water and continually wetting his lips to get water into him.  I don't know if he would not have survived that day without me, but seeing someone suffer it was nice to fee I was helping him - both physically, and emotionally of keeping him company. 
I work in a hospital - so hopefully my help has been part of quite of few people getting better!
