Now I am seeing my new home from the other side of the clock. Starting on Sunday, I switched to nights in the ICU. Sunday was rough because I worked from 7AM Sunday morning until 8AM Monday morning. This is not that rare in the world of residency, but we only do one of these shifts in the ICU since ICU tends to be a little more intense than the rest of the hospital. I will continue working 6PM-8AM for the rest of this week and half way in to next week (I do get one day off… woot!). The work itself isn’t too bad unless we get a lot of new patients. I have been able to read and even finish a book and watch some cable TV, which is a treat. I get some sleep (hopefully) at night at then grab some more during the day at home. I have been able to enjoy the nice weather more than when I was on days, also a plus. The big downside however is that I don’t get to see Jeff. I got out a little early today and saw him before he went to work, but for the most part we just miss each other on both sides. I feel like a circadian-challenged bachelorette which is and will get old quick. On the up-side, work in the ICU is getting a little bit less overwhelming every day and some days I even believe that I am, in fact, Dr. Miller.
