Deep Thoughts From Surgery

Three days on call.

Five appendectomys later.

Why can't people rupture their damned appendix before midnight?

I'm going to bed now.

Nights and weekends are free, aren't they?

If their appendixes ruptured before midnight then they'd be bumping all the boob-jobs, liposuctions and other "essential" medical procedures from their O.R. times!

From volunteering at an ER, I know how tough RNs have it sometimes. Keep fighting the good fight, Xavier!

Yep, I had my appendix out at 2 am in December just to keep the night people at the hospital on their toes!!

Just kidding, I actually went to urgent care and started the process at 7 pm, 2 am was when they finally gave me a CAT scan and found out she was gonna blow momentarily. In my defense, I had non-classic symptoms, so I was a difficult diagnosis.

I also was the only patient in the OR at that hour, so I got great service.
