For The Blog: Midnight Oil

I fucked up tonight. I went by the nurse's station at 8:00 this evening to get my nightly dose of meds - an antibiotic, a potassium pill and a folic acid pill. The nurse said that it would be better if I waited until later in the evening - I had taken an antibiotic with my 6:00 diuretics, so she suggested that I come back at 10:00 or later.

That's what I meant to do, but I fell asleep in my room. The nurse woke me at midnight.

Now it's 1:00 in the morning and I'm still wide awake. Damn!

(UPDATE: False alarm - I went back to bed at 1:30, fell promptly asleep and had to be awakened by a different burse at 7:30 this morning. I think I like my new room.)


Been there. Many times. Nurses are hired according to a test they take.
The test is weighted according to how bad they feel waking up a "patient" for some bullshit heh...
The less it upsets them, the quicker they're hired.....
I think it's an industry standard.
Hang in there man. You're halfway thru it.
