Today was the busiest day I’ve had yet in internship, which is weird, since I’m spending this month at what is supposed to be a sleepy outlying community hospital. Nope, though, not today. I started the morning with nine patients on service, and then a dozen blood draws, three IV lines, two urine catheterizations, two head scans, and one spinal tap later, ended with nineteen. And I left with the full knowledge that I could have less patients when I get back in the morning, but only because a few of them are easily sick enough to be transferred to the pediatric ICU at my academic center overnight.

With that, I bid you all goodnight.
