I have spent 4 days total in the ICU. Day 1 I placed an arterial line, and admitted a patient with acetaminophen overdose on top of copious amounts of daily vodka drinkage. Day 2 I placed a nasojejunal tube and my tylenol pt was WAY demanding about getting her sprite. Day 3 I performed a paracentisis on an alcoholic liver failure pt, and got out 5 Liters!!! woot. I also admitted a pt with bleeding lungs aka hemoptysis and pneumonia. Day 4 found out pt has H1N1 YIKES!!!!! and watched him have a broncoscopy. So far, I must say, the ICU is pretty stinking entertaining. Alas, I hate the 14+ hour work day. that is yuck-o. Speaking of long stinkin days, I go in tomorrow EARLY. Must arise at 4:30 am, what, hate my life. In any case, call me crazy, but I'm totally heading to the vangobot CD debut tonight at the Uptown bar. I may partake in sleep. I hope. I WILL for sure be self administering ridiculous amounts of coffee tommorrow.
So , as I wait to leave, (Hipsters start late) I'm going to do another Lisa supplied meme.
