How was your day???

How was your day??? Well, here is an update on the last day or two I have worked.

We had an emergency C-Section, that took over 2 hours to close her. Why you ask because I was working with Dr. Slow-Pants good Lord I hate doing sections in the middle of the night. My feet were actually starting to ache in the OR, and by the way, seriously an 11 sutures count and 40 laps, she was a prime section for Christ Sakes!!!!

Second delivery was the second most bloody delivery I have ever attended. I am NOT kidding when I say, the vaginal delivery room looked like a triple homicide, blood was not only pouring out of MOM, due to the lovely 3 rd degree laceration and uterine atony, but the room obvisiously is slight graded to the left because the blood ran out into the hallway, boy nothing like making the NICU team uncomfortable and wanting to throw up(that was actually funny:). Mom will not sitting correctly for a long time let alone sex will probably never be the same, I think it was a 4th degree but that was just me, but what would I know I was too busy massaging her uterus, hanging IV fluid, giving methergine, getting blood and calling for more backup. It took over 3 hours to sow her up. Her doo-da was so swollen and bruised, she will most like have a hematoma, putting in the foley was horrible. Good Lord!!!

tattoo to tooth ratio vs. IQ score and pregnancy ratio?

If the combined total of my patient and her husband's I.Q. was 70 or more, then I would be utterly shocked and probably willing to take back this comment.

Good Grief and they are about to become parents.

Overheard at the grocery store!

The other day, I ran to the store to pick up a few things for The Other Half's Big Birthday dinner.

Not to bad considering I only needed a few items. I was completely and utterly exhausted after working a 12 hour night-shift that some how turned into a 14 hour night shift with a 2 hour commute, but that in itself is another story.

Overheard while placing my groceries from my shopping cart to the register was: "I make loads of money....And since my wife and I are newly divorced, meeting new women has been harder than I thought." Me, I'm thinking, "Really because I'm sure your appearance has nothing to do with it!"

Man was 50 something, almost totally bald, dress shirt- nice shirt by the way, buttoned down, one button to low, sort looks like Chewbacca, 2 thick gold chains wearing sweat pants--too loose and too short, and a pair of black socks with navy blue crocs.

Go Figure!

Some people just Smell!!!

Okay, it's bad enough, I deal with Labor and Delivery and Afterbirth's screaming women, and incensitive FOB's and Family Members and or whatever......but please Lord, give me one patient soon who literally does not smell.

Please Lord, do not let them bring in horrible smelling McDonald's that will sit at the bedside or have them place it some where in the room that I can not find so it does not stink up the entire room and or floor of the rest of the night. Also, if you could just give the family a bad stomach virus if they even think about eating in front of their woman, while she is laboring that would be great too. Because that is just down right rude.

Please Lord, let one FOB/Husband not have the worst smelling feet under the beautiful sun you have created for just one week out of my life I would be forever grateful.

Please Lord, let us not have another patient and family members with a bad case of Pediculosis capitis for the rest of the year.

Please , Please....
