Today is Kyle's first day of Clinicals. It's still dark out, because it's only about 5 a.m. This week's going to be ugly for him. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday he'll be doing clinicals from 6 to 2:30, followed by his shift in the ER from 3:30 to midnight. That's three days in a row, with just a few hours sleep in between.
Of course, I feel compelled to get up an hour early, just to make sure he's up and ready to go. Can't be late for Clinicals. Ever.
Between school and work, he's learning lots, though. When he's finally just working shifts, it'll feel like a breeze to him.
