Sailing Along

The peds rotation has been pretty smooth sailing so far, at least for me. That initial enjoyment of PEDS is slowly fading away, being chipped away at by fever and cough, fever and vomitting, and fever and diarrhea. Child… after child… after child. At least 90% of the patients I see in a night have “Fever and ___” as there chief complaint. And guess what, they are all fine. Which is fine. It’s just not exciting. It’s just not interesting. And actually, it’s kinda dangerous, as one of these kids with fever and vomiting is going to have an appy, and they are going to be sent home. Just hopefully not by me.  The one truly exciting thing that has happened in the past 10 days, I was off for. (4 kids with GSW’s all piled into one car and drove themselves to our ED).  Well, I’ll just man the helm and keep sailing along, trying to avoid those icebergs.

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.
