My job.

My job ceases to amaze me. Really. Who knew that you could love your job so much after resenting it for so long. Anyway....this is where my job gets really cool...
Yesterday I took care of a patient with an at the knee amputation. Ok so normally it is either below the knee or above the knee, hardly ever at the knee. Anyway...his dressing was getting saturated and I wanted to change the dressing. So I did. Well I don't know what I was really expecting because I never really saw an at the knee amputation before, but at the same time I wasn't expecting what I saw. Anyway, as I was taking down the dressing, there staring at me was....A HUMAN FEMUR! I freakin saw a human femur that wasn't on a skeleton!! I almost had a heartattack. I mean I wasn't grossed out, just not expecting to see a femur. Usually amputation sites are sewn shut....not this one. But I can now say that I saw a human femur and now I can move on. Ohh...and I want to thank those Ortho docs that I worked with in Texas. Who knew that if you actually listen to them their ideas work ;) I didn't have to change my dressing all day!
