Blue Monday

First Monday of the last full week of January is the most depressing day of the year. This is for various reasons including distance from Christmas , etc. this year in the Ed I saw two suicide attempts, and two completed suicides, including a hanging and a shotgun wound to the face ( who did survive a couple weeks) and had a flap over his face, a Tracy, a peg, etc. he shot himself because he was brought up on child sex abuse charges. There is actually a formula for calculating this day. Including days since christmas, days since failing new years resolutions, weather, motivational level

Uodate on Baby Dolls

The baby doll owners had recently moved into town, and I had a feeling at that time they would soon be frequent visitors. They have been back a few times since then, and I saw them a few days ago. It turns out they have a new baby, who was abused, and has bruises and injuries all over. They have her as foster parents, and are trying to adopt her out (50$).

A must Post

Had to come here and post about the pt I had recently who was about 50 and a little strange during interview, but then I noticed this nice new, fancy Graco stroller sitting by his wife with two little pink bundles. "who are these little one?" I asked, and only when I stepped a little closer did I realize they were life like hand painted dolls, one even had a "stork bite", later when I came back, he was actually holding one in bed, they even had battery powered heart beats....Mady and Danielle....

Bullet From Body

This looks just like the jacketed Hollow point I dug out of a guys leg today. Of course I would never actually take a picture of the real bullet, so I found a similar pic! This guy was shot for flipping off another driver who was driving erratically,

Trauma again

Another weird month is ending on the trauma service. These people are really weirdos, trauma disproportionally affects the poor, the weird, the gangsta, and the insane! They are driving me crazy too!

Florida Gun Law

The proposed new florida gun law that has been spoken of at length on Grunt Doc's Blog is featured in this months EM News. The law would make it (potentially) a felony to even ask a patient if they have a gun in the home. You know my feelings on this issue, Docs should not be silenced, or muzzled as it were, on this issue. It is a standard child safety question to ask if there is a gun in the home of a child, then if the answer is yes, we can offer safety info, nothing more. Get a grip freaks!
