Nurse Calls Out
Within an hour of being due to arrive, the nurse’s babysitter fell through. So, here I go with another thirty-six hour shift. But, not to worry, I have Duke here to help.

Sue Stuck in Plane
Sue really has the worst luck with commuting. Who can forget the 14 hours she spent trapped in a snowstorm on the GW Parkway? It always seems to happen when we don’t have a nurse for the night too.
Her flight was delayed. And delayed. And delayed again. Finally, at 8:30 she boarded. At 8:40 we start a text exchange:
Sue: On plane. But it’s pouring so not sure if we’ll take off. How’s weather there?
Sue: Good. Love you all!
Just over ten minutes later…
