I just finished my first week in the Emergency department. I am not really sure how I feel about my day today... I don't know if I was prepared to see so many people die in one morning.
Maybe this is an odd thing to say, coming from a medical student. Death is probably as much a part of medicine as the living, but I must have been expecting this death to come in smaller doses. It was really hot today; combined with it being 'cholera season' and a few chronic illnesses in some susceptible people it was a rough one.
My husband is coming tomorrow so I am taking tomorrow and Saturday (the regular holiday day) off.
