    Everyone needs a name… Big Karen 1 and Big Karen 2 (two of the same name in the same unit? Too easy.), Peri-Care, and Long Lungs 265 (room number has been changed for privacy :P) have all rocked daily morning portables in the last year.

    After coding over a hundred times ….. 50+ in one ICU, the nurses nicknamed me “Shocking Man” …. months later, after I recovered I walked back in that ICU with my wife …. as soon as they saw her (because they recognized her), they screamed out “SHOCKING MAN”!! They were glad to see me, even though I was in a coma the whhole time I was under there care, I didn’t really know them. However, I felt a connection with them.

    Thanks for all that you do for people, EVERY DAY!!

    I can hold a patient’s hand and clean shit out from under their nails with an orange stick while watching Oprah’s favorite things episode and chatting about the day or code a 4kg baby 3 times before I’m done with my first cup of coffee. Thank you for reminding me that I’m fabulous. It’s all too easy to forget.
