as the world turns

13 Mar

Win: Today I diagnosed a woman with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo.  Then I watched her physician successfully treat her using the Epley maneuver.

Fail: It took me three (successful) sticks to draw her blood.  I blame her adorable small children, who had apparently reached their witching hour.  At every vial exchange, they decided it was the appropriate time to either crash into the table on which her arm was propped or propel themselves into her arms.

    It looks to me like two wins. I hope the kids had a good time.
