The End is What Really Matters

You know when you start the day and you have a feeling it's going to be one of those days where you never stop moving... well welcome to my Thursday... it all started with a 6:20 am call. Here are the highlights.

Challenges at the start of the day 
1. abdominal pain that ended up being appendicitis, that ended up perforating (one of the volunteers), 
2. convincing a physician to doing a CT scan for us for a cancer patient,
3. and looking for O- blood for a patient with a hemoglobin of 4 (impossible)

Results at the end of the day

1. Successful appendectomy, just finished recovering the pt,
2. batting eyelids successful, patient had the CT Scan
3. got a call to go pick up the blood to day at 4 pm after we were told it was not going to happen.

No breakfast, no lunch, no dinner, but still full
Finally getting to bed...I wonder what tomorrow will bring... ehh scratch that .... Whatever tomorrow brings, with God I know we can handle it.
