Hey guys...I don't get to talk to you much these days being as busy as I am so I thought I'd let you know what's been going on with my new job that you all helped me get by sending your good vibes when I was testing for it. I've been working at the jail now for two weeks and I really love my job. Saturday nights are particularly interesting and in two weeks I've seen more stuff than I ever expected and have dealt with more emergencies than I thought I would this early in the game. In two weeks I've treated a girl with a heart defect who started having crushing chest pain - luckily I had digoxin, oxygen and lorazepam on hand and she avoided a heart attack; a man having a grand-mal seizure from ETOH withdrawl who gave himself a good crack on his head which bled everywhere; a man with an infected arm from a human bite on his hand - I've never seen a liter of pus actually squirt out of human being before; another guy who had a bacterial infection of one of his blood vessels in his arm - we could actually measure the red streak as it climbed his arm toward his heart; and last night a man had a massive heart attack - so massive that his head and left arm actually turned purple, he was alive when the medics finally got there and we'd given him digoxin, aspirin and oxygen, but who knows what happened after; and my personal favorite a crazy guy whom we had to give three simultaneous intra-muscular injections to because he wouldn't take his oral meds and was an extreme danger to himself. That's just the tip of the iceberg too...I am loving this job and I'm learning so much everyday. I also enjoy visiting inmates and treating them for everyday problems as well and doing the med passes. I get a kick out of the imates and officers alike and I never feel endangered because I have so much back up. So how is everyone else's life going?
