Rough night on the ward, patient was screaming and my phone charger broke ug

its been a rough night on the ward. i didnt go to sleep until around 2 AM. I slept well until about 4:30. then I got up and went out to staff. Ber the nurse on duty made me a cup of tea. she’s really sweet to do that because she certainly doesnt have to do it. i then went online for a while. catching up on email and blogs and stuff. at one point i was messing with my phone and i dropped it. it was plugged in at the time. when i picked it up the plug part had snapped. one piece was still in the phone and the rest was in my hand. i was like oooo nooooo! what now! i tried to fix it, even brought it out to the nurses station to see if any of them could fix it. one of the male nurses tried but he said no, it was broken and there was no way of fixing it. i was so very sad! my phone is my life. the battery was only at 77 percent. over the morning it has gone now down to 50. i texted my sister to see if she has a spare charger. she texted back no, that she only has hers, and davin only has his which he keeps in his car. one of the nurses does have one which she is going to lend me after breakfast just so i can charge the phone to full capacity again. it looks like i’m going to have to buy a new one! i have a spare one but it is kind of broken too, but if I have to I will use it just to get me through until I am home and can buy a new one. My sister might get it for me I did ask her if she’d go to my house to get it for me. My mom is coming later this evening so she’ll be able to bring it then.

The other thing that happened tonight on the ward was a girl in the acute side of the unit was screaming, I think she was having some sort of nightmare or flashback or something. She jumped out of bed ran down the hallways screaming, i mean really screaming. The nurses all ran to her and they got her back to bed quickly but you could hear her crying when she went back into the bedroom. Some people in my ward got a fright, woke out of their sleep. That happened at around 6 AM. So yeah a busy night here in the hospital.
