Call has also been particularly challenging. Not just the volume of on-night call, but the complexity. Last night a patient in her third trimester came in with pulse of 200, respiratory rate of 60 and sat of 70%. She was in thyroid storm and I wasn't sure that I could stabilize her with the limited medication supplies we have. Thankfully she lived through the night.
So I'm grateful that the next 10 days I have off to spend time with my parents and sister who arrive Friday. Time to take more care of Meredith. Time to read and research more about certain obstetrical issues. And time to prepare for the Easter service this Sunday where we are reminded that Christ loves us.
