Well, tomorrow is it. The end of the CCU rotation. My goal is to do a play by play during call. We'll see how that works out. As for today, we did a little cleaning house. Moved most of our patients out of the unit and onto the floors upstairs. And, most of my patients went to private services... meaning off my service, and I don't have to do the discharge dictation...!
So, until tomorrow for a Friday night on call...
