rainbows and ponies

July 16, 2009

i won’t go into details about the woeful tales accompanying last night’s call night. that would probably qualify as complaining, first of all, and i have no desire to preserve those memories in this permanent record, anyway.

so i will just focus on the good:

my intern is awesome, for one. she worked tirelessly last night and never got frustrated or negative (wish i could say the same for myself). i am so lucky to have her on my team.

my attending is great, too. she is smart and wonderful to work with.

co-resident a. is the best ever for jumping my dead car in the parking lot. she will be rewarded appropriately . . .

it may have been a tough day but hey — now i can really feel like i’ve EARNED friday’s massage!

i got through leading a post-call morning report, and it wasn’t as terrible as it could have been.

i will sleep well tonight — no doubt.

and finally, orla awaits me in my mailbox tomorrow! something fun to look forward to. GOOD NIGHT!

    I had a moment on my last call when a mom refused to let us replace her child&#39s IV (who had come in b/c of dehydration!) and then proceeded to rant about how we all had attitudes…all while I&#39m saying "Yes, Ma&#39am" and "I understand." I just had to turn around and walk out…then proceeded to breakdown. Guess it had to happen at some point! Hope you enjoy your massage AND the new Ora! 🙂

    All that, and you have time to make a colorful post! I hope you are sound asleep as I type this!

    Is an all-female peds team unusual?
