Client: I know you’ve asked me not to bother you with my internet problems, but there’s a problem with accessing the site I can’t figure out. I can’t access the internet at all, and I even tried changing my IP.
Me: How did you change the IP?
Client: I crossed out the existing one on the back of the router and wrote a new one in.

got maybe 4 or 5 hours of shitty sleep last night before clinical, and then the surgical resident in my operating room fainted. i happened to see her sway, so i slid under the drapes and caught her before she hit the ground, but it was such a shitshow - like, she was fully passed out, and because surgery was still going and i couldn’t ignore the patient for her, we pretty much had to drag her to the corner, make sure she was breathing, put her in recovery position with her feet up, throw a cold compress on her forehead….and leave her there for observation. she was fine - just didn’t eat in the morning, got too warm under the surgical lights, and locked her knees - and that vasovagal response is such a bitch. she was super embarrassed, but i’m glad she didn’t hurt herself/anyone else, because she was in the middle of operating.
also there are no fluid sources available to anesthesia besides IV fluids, so i literally used a penlight to stab a hole in an iced saline bag to make her a cold compress. i EARNED my A today, macgyver’d the fuck out of that :)
and then i had to sit through hours of final anatomy dissection presentations, and i’m so tired! i think the morning adventure coupled with lack of sleep has me feeling all kinds of shitty. i’m super dehydrated, but not very thirsty (bad sign), haven’t eaten but not super hungry (also bad sign), and just really fatigued/achy/tired.
8 more days until the end of the semester!
