I got home today around noon. After work, I went to four freaking banks to get my american dollars turned into pounds sterling. I finally had to join a bank, so that they could order the pounds for me. Arg! I'll have my money in a few days or so they say, we'll see.

I am so tired. I have to go to work again tonight,and after last night I don't want to go back! I did make friends (well sort of) with a doctor that I was intimidated by. I helped translate for him, for a spanish speaking patient. I even got a pat on the back (really). I think he'll even remember my name now, as I had to call him fifteen minutes after he left to get him to clarify some of his orders. He was also the Doctor on call when one of my patients started seizing this morning and I had to repeatedly and STAT page him. It was pretty scary. I had to call a Critical Response Team. These are the people you call before you have to call a code(blue). I had to transfer the patient to the ICU after we finally got her seizures to stop after an hour and a half!

I am going to have to pull a House and take some Vicodin and go to bed.

You know, that's exactly how I felt when I was going to Ukraine last month and couldn't change roubles in the four banks I visited. Ended up exchanging on the train station. Felt even more ridiculous when in Urkraine it turned out you may exchange them everywhere. Really, what the?

I am a person that has to have everything planned in advance. If I was to arrive in London without enough cash it would be like I left behind my ID. I would feel stranded. I'm glad that the lady at the bank was so helpful. I'll be able to pick up my money today.

I understand needing to have some cash, but couldn't you have bought travellers' checks instead or simply used your credit card? Are both those possibilities much worse?

(I am asking this because I am a person with no credit card [it still happens :) ] and am seriously considering getting myself one.)

Oh, I have checks and credit cards. I have been in situations, during travel where a business does not take credit cards or checks and only take cash. Best to be prepared.

It can be a challenge. Some days are better than others.

I did get rest. I slept so hard the next day, that I missed my alarm and was almost late for work.

I am!

I don't envy your work, as I am not suited for hospital work.

Hope you got some rest!
