6 AM

I just finished staying awake through the night with one of my Home Instead clients. His condition worsened as his catheter failed due to bloodclots, and we had to transport him to the emergency room.

At the ER, I walked in on a corpse, watched the reinsertion of a bloody catheter, was exposed to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and basically kept his wife company.

Now it's time for a little sleep so that I can pick A Man up this afternoon. Then I'll visit the homeless shelter and afterwards attempt to get back on a normal sleeping schedule.

'Night, 'night.
