horrible

had a horrible day today. couldn't start an iv, an aline or an epidural to save my life. worse yet, wet tapped that same patient (a complication from placing an epidural for those non medical types). argh. luckily i killed no one. ended up with a femoral aline and several neck lines (several patients)

(apologies for the extremely lingo filled post. had to vent.)

on the plus side went to have arab food with my buddy who finished his cardiac anesthesia fellowship. it was a good time, tasty food, good conversation, damn road construction detours though.

I'm no good at this either, even with simple venipunctures :( sniff...

not to toot my own horn, but i'm usually decent. just a really bad day, or really hard sticks.

hey. that's what he called it. I would have called it mediterranean food.

did the patients at least have the decency to be difficult for the other doctors as well?
