Ear Thingamajig and Special Offers!

9 09 2010

Got crushed today.   Everyone in the world and their non-diagnoses dropped in for a visit. No time to eat, no time to drink, no time to pee.  Instead of dictating the mound of charts I accumulated over the course of the shift, I’m writing about that little ear thing.  Wasn’t even my patient, but I was enlisted to throw down with a feisty little 3 year old who somehow got something stuck in her ear.

Between the intractable squirming and the embedded object, it was a tough catch, but I was confident. “Oh come on, Deb. Just squirt it out. It’s easy.”
Famous last words.
“Gimme the irrigation!”
No luck.
“Gimme more irrigation!”
!@#$%^&
“Gimme the suction!”
No luck.
“Forceps!”
Nothing.
“Bayonets!”
Nope.
“Alligator forceps!”
Nada.
“Q-tip, I need a Q-tip! Her hands are coming up, her hands are coming up! Keep them away! I almost had it!”

With suction in one hand, alligator forceps in the other, a spot light on my forehead, and a nurse and another doc holding the kid down,  I finally was able to get a little purchase.  And then thhhhwaat!  I pulled out that little plastic thing in the photo.  Free stickers to anyone who can identify this object.

Check out the new look of the Alchemist website.  There is a new section for special offers.  The socks are live too.  Thanks to Dave for actually purchasing the socks.  What a guy.  The new offers are as follows:

Buy two Bike Share shirts and get a third FREE.

IMBA members receive a FREE pair of socks with $40 purchase.  Enter “IMBA2010” in the comments section of check-out to take advantage of the offer.

Will catch up in the next blog about the Dakota 5-0 and the recent Competitor interview.  Also in the next issue, Walt Wehner’s killer mods on the bike mower with pics and vid.

Time to dictate.
