both my wife and i are nurses. i met her at my first hospital and BAM! 3 year later we were together :p
we left that hospital together and joined forces again at our current position. people ask me if its weird or difficult. honestly, i love it. she may have different opinions on that one. but i do love working with her. she is immensely smarter that i, and i can rely on her answers for quick resolutions to my confusion.
now when we have our issues to work out, it seems that at work, its work. we go in together maybe not talking, but we end up going home together conversing. at this hospital we don't have time to argue or think about arguing. we're told that it is the #2 (or 3 i dunno) facility in the U.S. for penetrating trauma. lots of fun.
now at the first er, where we met, the honeymoon phase was going on. but as that kind faded, unfortunately, we did have spats. but i do blame that on my immature mind set at the time. as you get older you realize what stupid things you've done in the past. and i've done many. we argued over stupid things like saying bye on the phone or text message. rediculous, now that im the mature and supremely fine specimen i am today.
things are definitely different now. but as good as things are now, i do see in the future that we won't be together in the workplace. we're venturing into different fields. forensics and teaching for her, and i want to fly and intubate people. juggling family, work, and each other we add school to further education and our careers. she's done a lot, im kicking my feet around a bit, but im starting to walk in a direction of worth.
i'll definitely miss working with her. her witt...she would call bs bs. find fault in the doctor's orders. questioned their thinking. she's the go to person for iv's. never nervous, always collected. she'd argue with attendings and get them to see that she's right pretty much every time. someone i would love to eminate but not be able to replicate.
