- Saturday afternoon, we crossed the '40,000 patients seen' threshold of 2006.
- Saturday night, we hosted the patient with the highest blood alcohol record setter... BAC .712. According to the text book, this patient should have been having seizures, comatose, or close to death. He was lethargic, but breathing fine, knew where he was, who he was, and carried conversation. -I told him "God must have a plan for him because he should have been pushing up daisies with a BAC that high.". He agreed, and determined that maybe it was time he seek out a bible.
Our 'Team' at work is really blessed to have great skill sets that really compliment each other. We help each other out and flow really well. Even though our mojo started off really rough in the beginning of the night, we made it till morning with the 'my butt is kicked' feeling by the time the sun came up.
There are many other unique cases that occurred during the night, but honestly, I am too whipped to elaborate right now. I'll do it later. Right now, I just want to go to sleep.
Have a safe New Year, and don't do anything dumb enough to bring you to the ER tonight. We might be tired and cranky by then.
