I just keep being amazed at all the awesome ppl I’m meeting here. I’m working upstairs tonight with a woman who is inin her 70s and who’s been deployed by the Red Cross 98 times. 98 times! She’s completely amazing. Another Rn here is in her 70s as well and she’s a hoot too. I sincerely hope I can be like them when I grow up. They’re hilarious and hard working and fun. Plus being nurses we have so much in common — only their stories kick my stories asses. I only think I have stories, ha!

Tonight’s been good slow, just a few acute crises to ship off. Had some time to talk to clients from other nightes and also the local ems, army ppl, and cops. It’s a smorgasbord of authority here which sometimes makes things hard, but in general everyone’s heart is in the right place.

I’m getting Thurs night off — looking forward to catching up on sleep some then! :D
