That's it.

Another contract in the books. Worked late last night, didn't get home til after 5 am. That wasn't any fun, but the upside was that I got pictures on my phone of sunrise over Mt. St. Helens. That was cool.

Trying to make better use of the features found here. Let's see if they work.

So now we are off for two weeks worth of adventure before the next contract starts. I have some pictures to upload to facebook from the past week or two and we have some work to do still today to get ready for hauling Irv around. Hopefully the posts can come a little more frequent again as we move around and do stuff.

Every once in a while

It doesn't happen often, but when it does...

Sometimes you can help a patient beyond what is normally offered in the ED. It isn't a prescription, or a bandage, or suture. Sometimes it is who you are and what you have experienced placed through words and into someone at just the right time. Those moments when you see a light turn on when previously there was only darkness and pain are awesome. Sympathy and encouragement are powerful tools when they are appropriate. Just like any other medication though, they shouldn't be overused.
