And another rant

THINK BEFORE YOU CALL ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

No, really.

Think.

Is this an emergency? Can it wait until the morning.

Because I'm telling you, at midnight, I just don't give a fuck about the consistency of your stool.

Various rants

1. My sister is a fucking idiot. I'm going home this weekend for Christmas and I may end up in jail due to the need for my hands to be around her neck.
2. My mother is ill, going downhill now. She's killing me with the phone calls "BTW, I'm short of breath." "BTW, I've lost 20 pounds in a month." "BTW, I can't walk to the bathroom because it's too far." WHAT. THE. FUCK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? This leads back to point #1. My dumbass sister is willfully blind. She needs to be smacked with a clue-by-four. I volunteer to do this.
3. My fucking arm is killing me. I could barely make it through a case on Monday. I'm heading BACKWARDS in terms of function. I see ortho later this week. He worked me in because I called and said "I'm a hot mess." And that was a direct quote.
4. My partners are killing me right now. Can't say why, but we're all fucking insane. Me, because of my family. One partner is just going nuts. Another partner is in a similar situation as I am regarding parental units. I feel sorry for the office manager. Babysitting us has got to be fun.

Thank god my hubby is still mostly sane.

Call and its consequences

So my last weekend call blew. Pages galore, hubby sleeping on the couch so he wouldn't wake up, getting called in at the ass crack of dawn for a delivery, not remembering conversations with the nurses regarding a triage.

That's the life of an OB.

It sucks. Hard.

Many OBs decide fuck it and stop doing OB. Can't say I blame them. Younger generation is looking at the olds and thinking "WTF?" Laborist movement is gaining momentum. I have to admit, shift work sounds soooooooo tempting.

Overheard in the OR today...

"Do you wanna hold my Babcock upright"

My partner and I were cracking each other up with words like that during our case together today.
