From 30 to 8 in 17 hours

The 30 hour shift is dying.

Life in the Cardiac Care Unit is coming to a close for Justin. Tonight marks his last on call shift for eight weeks.

Catch that?

Eight weeks coming at us and he won't have to work a 30 hour shift!

Eight hour shifts!

Eight hour shifts!

Of course, the 8 is a technicality--it's likely to be 10-12 the first few shifts, but still. Only 12 hours in one day!

Naturally, they are timed at midnight to 8 a.m., 4 p.m. to midnight and 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., so nights are not over, but eight measly hours.... Yesterday when we were contemplating the future we could barely wrap our heads around the concept. Not to mention he's got two weeks of vacation so that we can go to Shannon's wedding in West VA.


We're going to have an almost-normal life!
