things i am not enjoying getting used to

August 9, 2008

1. getting up at 4.

2. having to eat breakfast at 4.

3. because i don’t get a chance to eat again until at least 1 pm

4. that’s freaking 9 hours!

5. meanness on rounds

6. standing up for FOUR FREAKING HOURS on rounds (yesterday, i realized i could run a marathon in the time that we do rounds every day. and sometimes i think it might be less painful.)

7. feeling like i can’t keep up with everything

8. and yet feeling like maybe it doesn’t matter because i don’t really have a good plan as to what to do for lots of things anyway

9. not being able to make even small decisions without running it by the fellow (necessary, because of #7, but i hate it)

10. going to bed and trying to fall asleep when it is still light outside

11. seeing my husband for like 5 minutes out of the whole week

you can tell i’m really looking forward to the next 30 hours.



reading: 30 minutes on ECMO (ie, keeping kids alive without using their heart OR lungs)

nap: i succumbed, but managed to keep it to 1 hour. it was the highlight of my day.

run: 9 miles, 0.5% incline, 9:03/mi.

    I feel sorry for you. I kind of know how it feels – I have been getting only 5 hours/night and maybe 1 hour as a nap all week. Zzzzzz….

    Next weekend you get a proper weekend, right?

    I hope you had a good call night!
