Six clinicals, 48 hours total, and NO trauma. D: Mostly just old people having seizures. I’m a seizure magnet, apparently. Good luck!
One patient with nausea and jaw pain (from a tooth extraction *facepalm*) who thought she was having a heart attack, and a 600-pound man who needed help getting into his house… All I’ve gotten after 12 hours adjfhldsaf lol. They call me the “white cloud”… ):
… And that I get a call or two! UGH. I need one more patient touch, and then I can relax. Well, I don’t really need it, because my instructor said that he was okay with just one patient touch, but like, all I’ve done is take blood pressure.
I want to hold c-spine. Or listen to lung sounds. Or something. Anything. Splint someone’s leg, or use a KED (even though they don’t use them often).
I just have to hope that the magic email comes tomorrow saying that I have to be at EHAC at 12 noon tomorrow!
Even if I were at school, I wouldn’t be able to start it. It’s like, I don’t even know what to say about it. “The biology department here screwed us over and gave us dead plants. Their method was to plant the seeds and forget to water them. We had to cut flowers off of the plants, and I sneezed a lot. We also forced them to have plant sex. There were no results. I can’t draw any conclusions. Nobody had inbred seeds. My second set of plants were thrown away. The end.”
Is that long enough? No. But I swear, that’s all I’m going to be able to write because it was stupid and bullshit and plants are horrible anyway and just everything was bad.
On the plus side, my family was thoroughly surprised. :D They had no clue. I didn’t really fool my mom- she saw me running from my car to my grandma’s house as she was pulling in and was like, “OH MY GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?! I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU DIDN’T WANT TO COME HOME THIS WEEKEND!” Hehehe, got ‘em. (Oh god when was the last time I said that?!?!?!?) But seriously, I called them all earlier to make sure there were no plans tonight, and told them I wasn’t doing anything all day… It was great. I still can’t believe that I pulled it off. :D Now to go to bed, since I have to leave early tomorrow morning to get back for chapter at 12, since the Wiz Kalifa (sp?) concert is tomorrow night. I’m not going. I don’t listen to him. Instead… I’m working on the plant paper. WOO. FUN. And I’m inviting Jeff over so I can make him dinner but shhh he doesn’t know. (:
I’m taking a surprise trip home tonight to visit my family. I called all of them and asked what they’re doing, and they’re all just hanging out. I have a ransom sign for the door with where to pick up the dog, and I have it all planned out. Now… to carry this crazy plan out.
Also, I made sure they all think that I’m working on a paper and cleaning.
