Medical Children’s Book Idea

I need one of my medical peeps that has artistic skill draw up the cover for my new medical parody, “Llama Llama Trauma Drama.”

While you’re at it you can also write the actual book. I came up with the title. My work here is done.

Worms

OB called the NICU office yesterday to let us know that on Thursday they will be doing a c-section on a woman with intestinal worms. The nurse from OB then informed me that the OB attending indicated in the schedule book that a large piece of tegederm (Fancy clear medical tape used for wound dressings and IVs) should be placed over the patients anus in triage to avoid the worms crawling out during the surgery and contaminating the OR.

In related news, I am off Thursday.

I tiptoed even though they are daffodils.

Radiologists. Can't live with 'em...

  • <b> Radiologist:</b> So tell me about this newborn that needs a CT scan.<p><b>Dr. B:</b> Full term baby, day of life 1, with possible obstruction. The abdominal xray and ultrasounds show some sort of cyst or mass that we can't identify.<p><b>Radiologist:</b> OK. You have a chemistry?<p><b>Dr. B:</b> Yes. Normal.<p><b>Radiologist:</b> Does the baby have a 20g IV?<p><b>Dr. B:</b> No. All neonates get 24g IVs.<p><b>Radiologist:</b> That's too small. You need at least a 20g for a CT with contrast.<p><b>Dr. B:</b> No. That's ridiculous. No newborn gets a 20g IV. In the history of this unit, no newborn has ever gotten a 20g IV. I've been getting CT scans on babies in this hospital for almost 10 years Abbas I've never once put a 20g IV in a baby. That's not even medically appropriate.<p><b>Radiologist:</b> Really? Are you sure?<p><b>Dr. B:</b> Wait. Are you the resident on call or the attending?<p><b>Radiologist:</b> I'm the resident, but...<p><b>Dr. B:</b> OK. Now I get it.<p>

I don’t want to brag, but I know sooooo many more bad words than this kid.

I imagine that pie is fantastic, but should there be some small (-) points for post-sugar-ish-rush? ;-)

There are never negative points for pie.  NEVER!

That’s a catch even Big Papi can appreciate.


I&#8217;m not a Sox fan, but clapping for that catch is pretty cool.

I made veggie burgers for the first time.  No picture of the final product because they stuck to the pan like someone soldered them there.  Tasty though.
