Today started with a short day at work. I had one smooth treatment in the morning, then some training seminars through the early afternoon. I got home right after Jack woke up from his nap. We ate navel oranges on the patio then walked to the park to chase robins.
Back at the house I grilled up the rib eye steak Ben had picked up at Edward's Meats today. It turned out PERFECT. I transformed leftover hot dog buns into garlic bread and served up artichokes.
Then the pager went off.
I told them I needed 15 minutes to enjoy my steak and then I hurried back to the city to change out a clotted CRRT system. Oh, so you gave him platelets and a plasma transfusion and his dialysis lines clotted? Just like that? Yeah, that's probably because you gave him platelets and plasma. Now most of the platelets are sitting in the trash-can. Seriously docs, let's think this through!
But it was a quickie call back and early in the evening, so I was eager to do it. Because we alternate with a partner I'm #2 for having to go back in now. I made it home in time to give Jack a bath and put him to bed.
