Haiku

Summer neuro call
Lightly sleeping with a live
Bedside hand grenade

While the doctor called Grumpy slept at his place
Came a call for him to pick up the pace
The ER was calling
Some guy was a-falling
You better get in to give give Alteplase.

I'm on call right now (not health care, but IT) and I love that image of a live bedside hand grenade.

OMG. I totally forgot about that. I used to be a rape crisis councilor (pre-baby-havin')- when a victim arrived at any hospital in the area, one of us got the page to show up and help her (I did have one male once, though) through her experience and refer her to services. We also brought them clothing, as law enforcement often took the clothes she came in wearing as evidence. Anyway, that pager sat right on my nightstand, right my head, like a little ticking bomb. Would I get a night's sleep, or would I be heading out to a hospital 20 miles away at 2am? To this day, I can't stand the sound of a pager.

antigravity
asleep oncall phone ringing
