When at 1915 I wondered out loud if it really was only "7:15?" I knew it was gonna be a long night. My poor, sweet patient didn't speak english, but everyone was expecting her to deliver since she was 7cm at 1830. Well after 3 hours of pushing + vacuum, she delivered at 0240. I just got my new Dansko's yesterday, and wore them for the first time last night. After seriously being on my feet for all 12 hours, my feet are a little sore...those are high arch supports! But, I think they'll feel better tonight.
Anyway, it was just a rough night all around. Everyone seemed to come in a little on eggshells, they closed down our parking garage and turned it into "visitors/doctor" parking (so now I'm gonna have to scrape frost in the morning!). I realized AGAIN, what a difference working with "team players" can make and the importance of having SOMEONE open for triage. I pray that the new unit that we're working on has a triage/antepartum unit...and that I don't have to work it! Ha!
BUT...it's over, everyone's still breathing, and I hope that everyone from night shift is at home and at least thinking about bed soon. Back for tonight and tomorrow. I'm taking brownies tonight, after last night, I think we ALL deserve it!
