Sunday in the trenches

Urgent care is a different world from normal family practice. It goes on every day of the week. You learn that people's illnesses are not limited to banker's hours. I think back on the days when I worked a Monday to Friday schedule like Veronica, with hospital calls before and after office hours. I don't miss it. This is so much more interesting, and if you can take care of someone right away, a lot of times they never have to go to the hospital. That seems ideal to me.
OTOH, it means sometimes I have to spend Sunday in the trenches, like today. Oh well, if it will help someone, then it's worth it. Cheers to Sundays.
