I was surprised to see you list "empty bed" under good news. ICU nurses know better than that. Did you get yourself a nice ED admit?

Yeah, it would have been better to state, "I only have one patient" instead! Actually, that bed stayed empty all the way through the rest of the weekend. That is virtually unheard of! Well, there's always next weekend, right?

Wow, that is unheard of.

I hope you have an uneventful night.

See my reply to acey in the previous post. You are also going on the list of well-wishers! I need all the good ju-ju I can muster! ;-)
