True life – working days in the ER is actually harder than working nights!! I never would have guessed.

At night there’s usually an hour or two when nothing happens and nobody comes in…but during the day it’s just an endless stream of patients. I’m amazed that people can do this every day for their whole life! They are obviously made of stronger stuff than I am.

Enjoy your weekend and happy eating!
