So I'm finishing up my third month in the NICU, still on orientation (we have a lot of extra staff since we're opening a second unit soon, and I think they're trying to avoid cancellations). I'm supposed to be on orientation for at least a few more weeks, but I got a call today at 3 p.m. from the NM asking if I could work tonight. I was able to reschedule my day tomorrow...so now here I am with two kids of my very own -- one with PPHN and IVH, and one with an encephalocele.
Past the halfway point of the shift now...hopefully all three of us will still be alive in five hours :uhoh21:

When I got off my first shift by myself I was drunk off the I DID ALL BY MYSELF. ( mostly) LOL
Then when I got home I realized oh crap I am going to Jail. Why? IDK. I just got that feeling! LOL
