So!! First day back on the ward after three weeks off.
We are currently not allowed air conditioning or fans due to the pandemic, and with the build up to storms late in the afternoon the ward was sweltering.
We kept windows open but curtains closed and we turned off as many lights as possible, which helped a little.
From the minute I stepped onto the ward I felt like I was melting the entire day.
My mask needed changing frequently because it just became saturated with sweat. The sweat rolled down my face and accumulated in my mask.
I was continuously having to wipe my eyes because salty sweat was stinging them!
I weighed myself when I got up this morning and just out of interest, when I got home I jumped on the scales again.
Considering I had drunk at least 2 litres of water at work and I’d had a late lunch at about 16:30, I had actually sweated off over 3 pounds!!
Anyway, with the leftover chinese and Budwieser I have just guzzled, I’ve probably piled it right back on again!!
Ah well. Got to do it all again tomorrow, then off for two days.
