So far, not much to talk about in the ICU. I will actually have THREE days off during this rotation. Unfortunately, I have to work almost two weeks straight to get to the first one. Today was a short day as there was some confusion about the schedule and I was allowed to leave after rounds.
Since I had the rest of the day off, Ru and I went to a late lunch at the very popular local "honky-tonk" BBQ restaurant. The place is always packed-- its clientele an odd mix of bikers and businessmen. We dined on fried green tomatoes, and I ordered the "Big Ass Pork Plate." Ru, being much more ladylike, instead of saying the title said, "I'll have what she's having." So there we were with our plates of "road food" surrounded by beer swillers, and she sips her hot tea like nothing has changed (including the tattoo-to-tooth ratio).
Happy early birthday Ru, and don't ever change!
