First ‘big’ clinical day

I’m tired as shit, so I won’t keep you long.  I was very worried about something last night, so I got to sleep around 4:00 a.m. and had to get up at 4:55 a.m.

My wagon is draggin’.

Anyway, my patient today-

came in for a total hip replacement.  Simple enough.

Immediately after hip replacement surgery, had a MI.

Was transferred up to ICU.

And promptly developed encephalitis.

Isolation gowns, masks, etc… may be sexy, but the shit shoooore is hot.

Now, I’m heading to bed and I don’t think much will bother me tonight.
