On being on call
Wow! Can't believe how heavy it rained just now. I noticed some debris were flying near the construction site at UMMC just then, it was that bad. Now the rain has stopped and we were bracing ourselves for admission at the Trauma Center. I will be on call tonight.
But it wasn't half bad actually. Gone were the days when I was on call for 56 hours at a stretch. Gone were the days going overnight without food, just keeping awake on adrenaline alone. At least now I can afford to go home after the evening rounds and expect calls to discuss emergency rather than physically having to be there. Can't complain really!
