>Surgery Saves the Day

>So, we have this screen door that leads out to our porch, and the screen from the lower panel of the door has progressively been coming out of the door over the past month to the point where it is now flapping in the breeze, in effect, waving in bugs like one of those guys in the street with the orange flags beckoning you to park in their lot.

I’ve tried a few things to fix this screen on my own, all of them ghetto, all of them lasting only a few days as a temporary fix, not long before the screen was flapping away again Why not just get it fixed by a trained profession? The local hardware store will do it, but they have to send it out and it will take two weeks. Its my favorite time of year, crisp autumn air, and I want to be able to leave my door open and let in a breeze, without bugs coming, so I can’t go screen less, at least until it gets colder and I won’t want to have the door open anymore. So this is the fix I rigged up today, thanks to the hours spent learning how to tie knots on my surgery rotation last year.

Prognosis of the door is looking good at this point, although it appears the surgeon could have been blind. 

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
