Agraphia Medical Tragicomedy

Good for a chuckle…

I know we all love the TSA, but when you start getting bottles of water confiscated left and right - and then find out they let a bomb on the plane 5 times out of 7 - you just gotta wonder... what's the point?

Anyhow, if you're all wondering why I haven't been posting, it's because I don't have much to say. My night on trauma call was somewhat uneventful (I did an ABG for the first time, irrigated a couple wounds, and saw a guy with his penis half-cut off†), but the rest of the week has been pretty boring. We're trying a new "clinic" program out, where we rotate through multiple specialties (so far: urology, neurosurgery, general surgery).

Unfortunately since I'm not part of a "team" - more on how that all works later - I don't actually have any responsibility. Great for free time, poor for sense of accomplishment.

On the other hand, I'll be on the trauma surgery team starting Saturday morning, 7AM, and then the fun just don't stop.

†yawn. Transected penises are soooo blasé.
