We're human too

You know, when my vacation is cut short because my mom is in the ICU, the following week when I see patients, I have little - actually no - tolerance for the whining.

So deal with it.

I'm so sorry about your mom! How is she doing? Wouldn't it be nice to be seen as human once in a while? I'm still fuming over a 4 am page for a "simple question." Really? At 4 am? Puh-leez.

The best part? She paged the wrong doctor. Too bad it took me another hour to fall asleep after the rage. Praying for you and your family...

Mom is doing better, out of the ICU (again) and on the regular floor. She's been bouncing in and out of the hospital/ICU the last few weeks. Basically, any complication of medicine/surgery possible, she is having. She's her own little Harrisons!

I'm on call this weekend, which is sucking rocks. Haven't slept well at all. And quite frankly, I'm not on my game right now for obvious reasons.

I HATE it when I get paged by the answering service wrongly! I feel your pain!
