In Recovery from ER Hell

  • OD’d Mime on the stretcher
  • Zombie with a bloody earlobe
  • Barfing trick or treaters
  • Unlucky Moped-crashing Harry Potter
  • Old man with chest pains…

Oh shit — that was Mira‘s Grandfather.

Last night — Halloween in the ER — was the scariest Halloween ever.

I can’t make sense of it.
Too much to process now.
I’ll get into the deep stuff later.

BUT —

working in an ER on a night like last night reminds me:

  • don’t let a drunk partier offer you a ride home
  • do be careful about what goes into your trick or treat bag
  • do carve your pumpkin, NOT your finger
  • do thank your paramedics, they are Gods and Heroes
  • don’t wear a costume you’re not prepared to be cut out of!

Yesterday the shift was a pain.

Last night, it was totally insane.

Today — it’s… it’s…

Maybe more later…

  • But now you have the story that starts, “This one time, on Halloween, in a hospital…”

    And if it was scary, then that’s part of the point of Halloween, right?

    Just trying to be an optimist here. 😉

    Hi Evie! It’s Jesse! Remember me? We worked together VERY BRIEFLY at a place on Ocean Boulevard. Mimes just seem to attract bad luck. Congats on the blog! Inspiring! With Love ….

      How could I EVER forget that NIGHTMARE?! Best part (actually only good part) was meeting you. Let’s work together again. K? Thnx for checking out my blog. xo.

  • Ohhh man, definitely couldn’t handle that. I can barely go into the hospital, let alone work there. Stuff like that freaks me out (but ironically my favorite show is Scrubs…ya, I don’t know either…) but I will definitely thank my doctor next time. So why were you working in ER?

  • This post was mentioned on Twitter: @20SB Guys, I’m still recovering from ER hell last night… part 1 posted, Evie Stewart’s Funny Bone http://bit.ly/3IGecL – how about U?…

  • The MIME OD’d?

    Really?

    I want to say something very intriguing here, but I just can’t.

    Good luck recovering. You might need therapy. Or, if you already get therapy, you might need to up your visits.

      He was ODing when they brought him in, he wasn’t around when I signed out like 6 hours later… rough night in soooo many ways, thanks for the support. Luckily I have acting as my therapy (haha!)
