All of this, and more, wears you down. It becomes easy to just go with the flow. But that's not always in the best interest of the patient as it's abundantly clear that within the hospital setting the left hand doesn't always know what the right hand is doing, there are transition and handoff errors, and people and systems don't talk to each other. So you have to fight your urge to acquiesce. And stay on point.
I got a bit of a battery recharge yesterday. Was able to be away for 6 hours. Had to take Daisy to the vet and do some chores around the house. Then had a wonderful dinner with Casey while Riley graciously stayed with Meagan. Steak and fries have a remarkably healing effect and sure beat hospital food!
