>“C-section is like the DiGiorno of pregnancy…It’s not delivery”
Last week of neuro. Can’t wait for it to be over. For whatever reason, its just really not my cup of tea. I’m trying to keep positive about it though, and at least keep my eyes open and just observe how others do their thing, at least pick up a few “style points” as I like to call them.
As for KM, mentioned below…that one day of semi lucidness…was a one day thing only. The next day he was back to his baseline unfortunately. He remained in the ICU for another 8 days while his family debated on the best course of action, in the end, deciding to withdraw care. He passed less than 24 hours later. Seeing him every morning before rounds, I was amazed at how you to start to get attached to these patients. In reality, I know nothing of KM, whether he was a good or bad person, never talked to him, barely even made eye contact, but you feel for them, in some place inside. Its hard to describe that feeling, perhaps a cross of sadness at a life destroyed/hope its never me/shit, that could be me/what would I do if it was me/his poor family/what is he thinking laying there?/can he even think?…. Its like a thousand thoughts and questions at once, none of them with an answer.
