Here at St. Anthonys the physicians are the epitome of good health as can be witnessed by our daily fare in the doctors lounge. Yummy!

Wow I'm tired. It's been a while since I've done a 30 hour shift, most of the times I've been lucky with being on call and able to go home at 7am the next morning. Monday however I was on call for labor day and worked through the night and had to stay the next morning to round on patients as well. I was actually doing pretty good, but then after I got to go home I only slept for a couple of hours before having to wake up for our fantasy football league drafts. Which was fun, this is my first year doing fantasy football and I have no idea what I'm doing but it should be fun! :)

As far as call, I got to do an intubation and place a central line, (we had 2 code blues happen at almost the exact same time lol) so a very fun and productive night for me! I also got about 1.5 hours of sleep during the night, so little sleep is better then no sleep! :)

I got a new toy, a Canon A520 digital camera. I need to break it in and take lots of pictures so I can post them on here later. My blog looks sad and lonely. :( Too bad my life isn't more exciting right now for me to have more stuff to input hehehe. Just work, sleep, work, sleep. Occasionally going out to dinner with friends.

ahahathis is great. This patient made my day. The paramedics brought in this patient who had been found unconscious under a bridge. He was awake when they brought him in and the first thing he said after I walked into the room was that I was the most beautiful doctor he had ever seen. Lol never mind he was drunk off beer and mouthwash! It certainly made my day however. Can’t help laughing every time I think of him.= )

Fun stuff last week. First off I decided to take a couple days of PTO for a little break and to refresh myself. We went to the Green Day concert last Wednesday, had a lot of fun and the music was awesome. Only bad thing was that Jimmy Eat World only played 30 minutes and I really enjoy their music and wished they had played for a little bit longer. Also they kept running out of t-shirts that I wanted. :( So I ended up having to settle. No cameras were allowed so I don't have any pics really except this one that was taken for us there at the concert and a few on my cell phone that I'll take a look at later to see if they're even worth trying to post.

I’m not sure what it is but I couldn't see myself as a ER doc for all my life. Sure the lifestyle is great but I prefer the limited structure of an office schedule I think and being able to expect what’s coming through the door next. Also I think just the typical quality of er patients are a turn off. It seems like 10% of the patients are true emergencies if even that many. 50% want some kind of pain medication and the rest have a minor medical problem... And then want pain meds lol.

Ugh I had one patient earlier today that I had to hold my breath while in the room... I actually started to get nauseated from the smell after a while. Lol oh the trials and tribulations!
