After 37-1/2 hours, I finally have relief! In the form of both Sue and the nurse.
I’m, for the most part, wiped out. I’m dirty, tired, hungry, and just generally cranky. You know, just how I always am. 🙂 And, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I always felt especially good after putting in a good day’s work. Working with Ryan exceeds this by leaps and bounds. It’s work, yes. But it’s so rewarding and when a person loves what they do, there is a sense of personal satisfaction and accomplishment.
Sue, as you already know, spent last night in her car… trapped on the George Washington Parkway. Her dedication and loyalty to all she commits to is amazing. She was able to spend time with Ryan, grab a quick nap, and head back to work by noon. Personally, I think she’s insane… but, in a good way.
Tonight might just be one of those rare nights where I fall asleep quickly and get a few quality hours. Sue will be by Ryan’s bedside, sleeping (as much as possible) in the bed next to his. Some night I’ll have to make our video & audio feed available to readers of this blog. Especially to those so designated the Middle of the Night Club.
