This is the longest day I’ve had in medicine. I wanted to be on non-trauma today so I could be on the trauma service on Friday when I would expect to see more actual trauma. Today we were nonstop with non-trauma consults pretty much from pass-on (ends around 8:30 AM) through about now (2:00 AM the next day). It’s kind of gone by fast, but now that I have a second to rest the fatigue is catching up with me. I can’t wait to go home and sleep in 7 hours.
