Poker Foot

This woman waited a week to come into the ER.
She stepped on a needle. Part of the needle was sticking out of her foot, so she tried to pull it out. It broke off at skin level, but she thought she'd pulled 'most' of it out and the rest would work its way out.
It didn't.
Her foot started throbbing and she couldn't sleep at night, so she finally decided to come into the ER.

Gimme Gimme

This little 3 year old child had a tantrum and pulled a candy machine over. It fell on their leg and broke the femur in two.

Head Lines

Headline from a newspaper: "Queen Mary Having Bottom Scraped".

Made me laugh.

Anonymous Mouse

So.....I have a lot of interesting cases to share with you, but I recently had a tiny anonymity scare and I'm not sure if I want to keep writing this blog.
This blog is anonymous, for obvious reasons. I never use patient names or identifying info and I sometimes change stories, so they can't be identified.
But, I still don't want anyone (HIPPA,JCHAO, my boss, ect.) to know where I work or who I am ......So if you know me from the "real world", please keep it a secret.

Chickens Dickens

Warning! This post is about chickens! No x-ray stuff AT ALL!! Just Chickens!!!

It rained today and I got some cute pics of the ladies playing outside in the rain/mud. They are officially HENS now. Their hatchday was Aug. 1st 2007. They're not my little pullets anymore (tear), but old lady hens. Imagine being considered old, over the hill, cull-able after only one year of life.

Zela busy hunting worms.

Scratch,scratch, scratch. Peck, peck.

Butter got a little wild in the mud. Your mascara's running sweetie!

"Hmmm, are these good to eat?"

"Yes, mumph, gulp, mmm, tasty!"

Pippa poses for a picture.

"Ahhhh, paparazzi!! Run!"

"No more photos!"
