A good thing to make friends with

October 24, 2007 at 11:05 pm 2 comments

Tonight when I talked to Doug, he told me that the Resident-who-we-can-never-remember-his-name-even-though-he’s introduced- himself -20- times, (you know..the tall guy) came in to check on him and assess his progress.

WELL, he said the drain is working well, and told Doug to become goooood friends with the drain, because it’s going to be there for the next few days.

Ok. fine. Sounds good to us.

It seems that this abcess was BIG. We’re talking honkin’ big and pressing on his liver which accounts for a lot of the pain he’s been in.  We’re not sure if it was there (we think it was) when he left the hospital last time…but we know it’s draining nicely now.

and the one resident and medical student are still talking about my description of what was in the wound vac when I saw it…They asked me what it looked like. I gently reminded them that my normal job is teaching middle schoolers…mostly juvies…and told them it looked like snot.
