Zoe: A day in the life

Sonny was back on Safari today for some more chemo. They didn't have an isolation room free for him so they found a place for him in the recovery room on Safari where kids come round following minor operations. (No procedures were taking place today). It was a huge room with just us in it and a lady sitting behind our curtain on a computer busy booking children in for procedures. The lorazepam Sonny had taken to prevent sickness had made him rather sleepy so while he snoozed it off I had to listen to lots of terribly confidential conversations about other patients and their choice of portocath v hickman line and a few student nurse appraisals. I also learnt that the secretary's fella was a bit of a let down and keeps falling asleep early leaving her bored out of her skull and that her daughter needed her to babysit as she needed to get her tattoo redone. And there was me feeling sorry for myself.
