Itís my turn to work this Thanksgiving. Although I am disappointed that I will not be having dinner with my husband, I knew that we would only be doing emergency cases in the OR. Expecting a relatively light working day, I... Read More

    Thankfully, my husband is also in medicine. He understands with one look.

    Broom closet affairs? Has he been watching too much TV?!? I wish your hubby knew that our fantasies entail a complete lunch break (where we can actually DIGEST our scarfed down meal), time to pee, and being able to chart without interruptions.

    This story just Chuck Norrised my feels. Wonderfully written, and you have an amazing husband by your side!
    Yes, I do. I am thankful every single stinking day that he is by my side. Oh, and I can't help but mention that I am also lucky to have a puppy that curls up next to me, smelly feet and all!

    I think the last straw (of many) was when I finished a night shift getting my @ss kicked in a busy ED for three consecutive twelves, and then drove the three hours to get home that same morning. Exhausted, I got home, and Hubby saw the passenger side visor down in my vehicle. He immediately thought I was having an affair with a coworker: "That visor wouldn't be down if you didn't have a man in that seat!"

    He didn't buy the fact that to keep from driving off the highway after a night shift, I needed to keep the blinding sun out of the car...

    Anyway, I'm glad the OP has a good man at home to sooth the warrior wounds. It really does a make a difference to come home to an oasis of peace, understanding, and care. And, she can keep writing her wonderful stories!

    On my way home from a night shift this morning I, too, lowered the visor on the passenger side. You can tell your husband...it helped my vision, and I made it home safely.

    I've got a doxie mix that burrows under the comforter & curls up down by my feet. It doesn't matter to her that she slept all night with my husband. She still comes back to bed & sleeps with me all day. Best dog EVER! (Although, she's not terribly bright. She feels like she must accompany me to the bathroom, presumably to ensure that there's no vortex to the Bermuda triangle in there that will whisk me away & leave her alone.)

    I don't have to give an accounting of my car visors anymore.

    He hasn't been my husband in over ten years.

    Ta-da!

    Neurotic, aren't they?

    But I love her dearly.
