In Which Life is HARD

Worked my first two back-to-back 12s on the floor as a New Nurse. Woah. Surgical floors are INTENSE. We had two patients pre-AAA surgery (pressures at 100 systolic? sure sir, i can try to maintain wait...she's back up at 140...give metoprolol...recheck...ok, now she's back up...fuck)

At the same time, we in the Frozen Northlands were involved in a rather large search and rescue. As a result I am exhausted. And it wasn't a good outcome either way, though lord knows we tried...and we didn't miss the subject where we were looking, they were simply elsewhere.

On the bright side, I haven't screwed up yet.

AAAs are very scary things indeed. Keep on keeping on!
