Мысли Всмятку

Ad Majorem Annae Gloriam

ICU is a blend of everything - cardiology, infectious disease, trauma, overdoses... and a good lesson on how NOT to live one's life. A few stories, alternating between second and third person, follow to illustrate.

Example 1. Wear your seatbelt.Collapse )

Example 2. Smoking catches up to you.Collapse )

Example 3. Your veins aren't there just for fun.Collapse )

Example 4. Pain is your friend. Listen to it.Collapse )

Example 5. Did your mom tell you to floss?.Collapse )

Example 6. Oh, they will feel bad when I die!Collapse )

ICU keeps me so busy with preparing for rounds, rounding, reading up for discussions, having discussions and following up on patients that I have barely any time to prepare for interviews at the Midyear. AND I am sleeping about 4.5-5 hours a night. Rutgers still haven't replied to me. I mean, it's not as sad as the state of my patients, but still. It's a pity they have a couple programs I am interested in the most, otherwise I would simply drop them from my list. I am not accustomed to being slighted.
