Me: after removing dressing over pt's incision It looks good!
Patient: Oh. Good?
Me: Really good.
Patient: Just really good?
Me: Really, really, really, really, really good.
Patient: Well, that sounds good.

That's what you get from cluttering your mind with all that fancy medical terminology. For example, the word"owie" covers most less-than-fatal injuries. Knowing that could free up a lot of mental capacity.ReplyDelete
I just spent a few minutes catching up on your twitter feed for the past couple of weeks and laughed so hard my black tea almost came out of my nose. I guess maybe I will have to think about actively using that gizabeth twitter account I made years ago so I can follow and respond. Someday. It stresses me out to think about how to find and use it. Back to a big breast case. P.S. Dr. orthochick you crack me up. That reminds me of conversations I had with my kids when they were toddlers. Endless spirals of banal reassurance.ReplyDelete
