Last night’s call was one of the most… hardcore ones I’ve had for a while. It started off wonky to begin with and spiralled rapidly southwards.
You know when there’s only 4 people on call and there are five major ops going on that things are not going too well. Ended up getting the on-call consultant to come back physically to help clear cases. And even then we ended up running five, then four, then three theaters till about 4 in the morning. We only dropped back down to the normal 2 by around 7am.
And gods, I felt like a ping pong ball since, while the others were stationary in one theater, I was running around helping in two or three theaters. Was driving me nuts.
