|this is what i look like when i'm reading your blogs.|
i slept in until 6:09am.
it was my day (night?) off last night
so nick and i slept. in the same bed. at the same time.
i know. you're impressed.
here's a small sampling of what i've been dealing with at work:
a teenage dude so drunk he couldn't protect his own airway from his own vomit. so he bought some plastic and i intubated him. blam. don't get drunk in my ER or you'll end up in the ICU too.
an old lady with a heart rate of 27.
(this is bad.)
a 3-year-old whose hip hurt. turned out it was appendicitis.
lots of vomit.
and a computer systems crash that meant i had to wait 4 hours for a measly lab test.
talk about everything coming to a screeching halt.
night shifts are a bit more relaxed at ol' BAMC.
no colonels walking around making everybody all tense.
so we've been jamming to some tunes on a pretty regular basis.
my personal favorite:
"i got a beep from Kim"
"i didn't even have to use my AK...i gotta say it was a good day"
no AK usage?
that IS a good day.
