Here's my Vikings Baby Hat Creation on it's first owner!
Today is a long awaited day off. I was in the ED for the past week and while I enjoyed it not much got done around here while I was gone. I also didn't really get to see Bry very much. So today I slept in until 5 minutes ago and am going to clean up, do laundry and get things in order. Friday marks my first day on the Neuro ICU and I am NOT ready for that at all! September went by way too fast and now October is just ahead.
The time in the ED has gone really well. I have had some pretty sick patients this week. I had to intubate my first patient (in residency) and it went well and the pt is doing well too. I had a lot of serious diagnoses such as DVT, hyperkalemia, strokes, pneumonias, broken bones, it goes on and on. I also got to do an ultrasound and show a lady her baby -moving and kicking and a beating heart. That was pretty neat. Of course there were some frustrating patients too and with them I practiced my "nice voice" and my "poker face".
Hopefully I get a lot accomplished today. Wish me luck!
