up all night... saving lives
So here it is, 4:30 in the morning, and I'm posting to my blog when I should be sleeping. Actually, I'm just passing time while waiting for the tech to finish making a blood smear on a suspected Hantavirus case. One of the few rare situations that might actually require a pathology resident to come into the hospital in the middle of the night. The funny thing is that earlier in the evening (11:20 last night) I got one of the other few rare calls: a massive transfusion protocol on a trauma patient. -- time passes -- Night work done and now its morning and time to proceed with my day.
