Despite a week of vacation, Doc H is exhausted and I'm exhausted. It's our first day back at work and obviously one week off was simply not enough.
Life at the hospital has been rough the last couple of years. We've been down a surgeon for two years, and during this time his patient population has multiplied thanks to ACA. Simply put, it's worn him down. He comes home with dark circles under his eyes and his tall physique a bit slumped over from the weight of his lead vest. Swirl in his administrative duties and daily life is an unreal, nonstop, full boar, circular race to a finish line, which quite frankly, doesn't exist.
And, here I am at home, doing it all solo, and feeling terrible that my husband is so damn tired. I'm simply exhausted of all the exhaustion.
But, you know me... I'm always trying to find a bright spot in this blender of life.
August will be an exciting month! Our third daughter will be heading off to university and Doc H's newest hire will be joining the team! I'm praying his work load will lessen and we can enjoy some time to breathe during a normal work day.
A simple, daily lunch break would be a nice place to start.
