I'm about a third of the way through my 27 hour shift. Working overnight tonight. Taking 15 minutes for lunch. At 3:00. Because no one is crashing. For now. Hopefully I'll be able to get some sleep somewhere in the midnight to 6AM range, but since I have to write a dozen patient notes, I'm thinking maybe I won't. At least I hope I'm able to order in some dinner at some point. My lunch is sad. Vending machine sad. And someone brought in donuts. So I'm eating Doritos and a chocolate donut, plus a leftover Jello from one of my patient's trays (he's in a coma, so he won't be eating it). If he's still here for dinner (and still in a coma), I'm getting his chicken (I filled out the meal card for him-- chicken seemed safer than the fish).
