While dreading my 10 hour shift at the hospital today, I knew from the moment I entered the ED, all I would be hearing about would be regarding the Ebola virus that is going around and scaring everyone in the DFW area.
While the hospital I am employed with has not diagnosed a patient with the virus, everyone is on pins and needles. We are all taking major precaution.
Working at the hospital at this time will bring some anxiety no matter what position you hold, but it is refreshing to know that we all come together to make sure we are taking care of each other as well as the patients.
Today was not completely dreadful I might add, one of the nurses had an old family friend bring their catering truck to our facility and catered free lunch to all ED employees.
This was no average catering truck.
White coat symbolizes the Doctor.
Burgundy scrubs symbolize the Doctor’s Intern.
Green scrubs symbolize the Tech.
Blue scrubs symbolize the RN Nurse.
As you can tell, we all gathered around the catering truck for free food.
The lovely people from, “Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe,” provided six different delicious meals to choose from.
1. Extra Cheesy Classic
(Swiss, cheddar, mozzarella, and pepper jack cheese on sourdough.)
2. The Turkey Trot
(Turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, and slob sauce on sourdough.)
3. Ruthie’s Patty Melt
(Grilled hamburger patty, American cheese, caramelized onions on sourdough.)
4. The Boss
(BBQ Brisket with sharp cheddar cheese on sourdough.)
5. Ham & I
(Ham and Swiss on sourdough.)
6. Italian Hippy
(Chicken, mozzarella, grilled tomatoes, pesto on whole grain wheat.)
It was the best local BBQ I’ve had in Dallas and it came out of a truck!
If you’re ever in the DFW and you happen to spot, “Ruthie’s Rolling Cafe,” be sure to stop by! They can even cater your next event.

Working today didn’t seem too bad after such a tasty & free meal! Nope, not a bad day.
