As I finished my shift at the hospital to say today had been hectic would have been a fucking understatement. Three car crashes an to top that all of some dude shoot himself, Sometimes i wonder why i wanted to be a nurse but then there are the moments when it makes it all worth it. the pouring rain didn't help my mood much either only seemed to sour it more. the drive home didn't much help either or the thought of having to cook diner not tonight i just wanted to lay down and forget about tonight. i through a microwave dinner in and showered, Eating my dinner in the bed watching underworld. In the morning i made my coffee and got ready for another day at work hoping today would be a good one. after clocking in my day started in a slow pace little did i know that today would be the start of something that would change my life, And how i viewed the world as i know it for ever.
( Paging nurse Kendra, Paging nurse Kendra) "God what could of happened now" i finished up with the man that i was currently treating, An went to the front desk to see what i was paged for Amy was sitting at the front desk looking like she was about to have a high level freak out. " oh thank god your hear Andria is out on break right now and the police just called, Apparently there was some kind of gang war or something and their rushing in like thirty paitents in right now. All with different degree of wounds. I need someone to take charge and start getting everything ready for their arrival in forty minutes" Jesus have mercy I said ok i picked up the intercom (we have a code zero all nurse on deck prepare for thirty plus forty minutes till) I saw all the other staff scrambling to get rooms emptied and prepared for the people coming in all none emergency care patience have been discharged and anyone else has been moved to a another wing of the hospital. when the ambulances started rolling in we were ready to start. To say that it was utter chaos would have been an understatement so many injured i hadn't seen anything like this. after treating five patients i realized that there wasn't any gunshot wounds and some of the stab wounds seemed off like they weren't made with a knife more like claws or something like these people had been mauled but that couldn't possible have happened. Right? I had to be just tired or hungry that's why cause there could not have been anything out there that could maul this many people and go unnoticed and the police would have surely said something. a lot of the patients didn't even make it to the hospital and we lost three their was nothing that we could have done for them by the time they got here they had lost to much blood. An one had even went into organ failure before she even came through the door another one died soon after her his heart gave out. which was weird cause he was one of the ones we thought were gonna make it before all this then he just killed over. some of the patients came in covered in blood and when we got it cleaned of thinking there was a wound there and nothing was there. This day could not have gotten anymore stressful or confusing. by the end of it out of the thirty people expected to arrive only twenty survived that was a great blow to me and the nurses and the doctors currently on staff. My shift wasn't even half way over and i'm all ready tired and worn out. the amount of stitches and surgery prep that had to be done, Not to mention the blood typing and matching from the blood bank we only had so much O negative in the hospital. by the time my shift ended i was completely worn out. all the way home i couldnt help but grumble about all the stupid crap people do to each other like going to war in a city cause your in a different gang like what the hell. when i made it to my little two bedroom hose i noticed a little pink blank bundle on my porch. What the hell do not tell one of the neighbors dropped another sick animal on the porch hoping i would take care of it again. why does to today have to be so freaking crappy. As i slowly walked up to my porch i heard a light cooing and gurgling sound, Almost like that of a baby. I froze " No NO No No please don't tell me someone did what i think they did Please No ." I felt my face drain of color and my hands start to shake as i slowly stepped towards the pink blanket I noticed that it was wiggling around and the cooing sounds where getting louder; Then a loud piercing cry came from it. Which spurred to to start running towards it i slowly picked up the blanket and moved it so i could see inside and what i saw nearly broke my heart.
