I am pulling a 48 hour call Xmas eve and Xmas day.I was on this last weekend and did 12 hours on Sunday then 12 on Monday. I just finished 14 straight on the eve. I work the OR and had two horrendous cases today! Hopefully tomorrow is quieter.

PS, I don't live where I work so I am not at home for the holidays. I live 8 hours away! Merry Christmas to all and to all a quiet shift. Mike

Thanks Mario.

And thanks to the great nurses that I worked with today-it was very good- and lots of cookies, dips and ham sandwhiches too.

And they scheduled me 7-1p instead of 7a-7p. Had a nice relaxing afternoon and evening with my family. Don't know about mixing Hospice nursing with LTC acute now though. I want to be the Hospice Fairy. La la la la.

Well this year I drew the line in the sand. I had worked every holiday for almost 2 years. So when I was scheduled for Labor day after requesting it off in april. Just the day mind you and was turned down so the MA could have another holiday off with her family, I quit. I now work Agency and love it for the most part. The last 2 weeks have been so much fun. The facility I usual work 40 hours a week at on the same area, I got to say when asked if I was working the 24th,25th,31st or the 1st and for the first time in 15 years I got to say "I DON'T WORK HOLIDAYS"
