S and Q

For those of us who work in the healthcare industry, and more specifically, in or around emergency medicine, there are two words you never, ever utter. S and Q. S translates to not busy, the opposite of fast. Q is the opposite of noisy. Even now, I daren't utter those words, as the second you do,... Sign in to see full entry.

Welcome to "Friday Night Frights and Hilights" courtesty of Woodleigh Regional Medical Center. Presently on the program, altered status patient, who, upon my trying to draw her blood, has pronounced me a "Huzzie" (I think she meant hussy, but her trying to chew on the bedrails may have garbled...

Burning bridges

Sometimes, you look back on things and realize you've changed. Maybe it's a good change, maybe not so good, but you're different. In my case, I was thinking about people who have come and gone in my life. We are sent people who are with us for a "season", a finite amount of time, chosen by the Lord....

The underbelly, beer and culture(s)

If you work in a hospital for any length of time, and the "honeymoon" is over, you will see the seamy underside of a community - even one as small as Woodleigh and Boondocks. In the past 2 days, we've had a massive influx of patients, all at the same time. (One of the ER nurses told me her opinion... Sign in to see full entry.

The miracle on the road to Fallujah - and faith

Another Friday night in the Woodleigh E.R. Again, no sleep, but the time was spent talking to the Lord, sorting things out. It seems so simple - let go, let God. It is so very difficult. I had to review all sorts of things from years passed. During my son's first tour in Iraq, he was a gunner on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Pillars of clouds, fire and peanut butter manna

I've moved into a new stage in my spiritual life: "Trust in the Lord." As in, for everything. I know we're supposed to do that anyway. However, this stage, for myself at least, requires I not be able to do anything but trust. My human side is freaking out. My spiritual side is intrigued. This new... Sign in to see full entry.

Drinkers and dominoes

I haven't written in a while, work has been busy up until shift change and by then, I'm ready to leave. My weekend alone (with techs), went fine, although by end of shift on Sunday night, I was ready to go home, and pretty much fell into bed after work. Today, I am just tired. We've been busy, not...

And we're off...

If you were to compare weekends as the only phleb scheduled 1-9 at Woodleigh Regional to a sport, it would be horse racing. You are at the starting gate at the beginning of the shift, and you clock in and -BAM!- you're off and running. Upstairs, to the E.R., upstairs, to the ER,.... As someone who...

Dribs and drabs

I didn't sleep last night, at least not much and not well. As to why, I have no idea. I found myself out in the horse pasture at 1:30 a.m., just looking at all of the stars and blurred areas that are apparently constellations or galaxies or some conglomeration of astral items. My mind wandered... Sign in to see full entry.

Is the customer always right?

On the way to my wonderful Woodleigh Regional, I had to make a stop at our local grocery store. As I approached the Customer Service counter, another woman arrived there at the same time, and she was not happy. Apparently, Kyle, our little Customer Service guy, had just finished speaking with the... Sign in to see full entry.
