Today I saw an unrestrained passenger in a car who had been partially ejected through the sun roof. A witness reported seeing her head break through the glass and her head hit the edge of the metal window frame. She was effectively scalped, and there was a dent in the metal sunroof frame from her skull. She is ten years old.
I know you all do, all the time, but BUCKLE UP YOUR KIDS.
Fortunately, she survived and the doctor was able to sew her scalp back to her head, but I have to tell you, she should not be alive based on the damage done to that car by her head.
I got to work and immediately at 6:00 a.m. the pager went off: "BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP chhhhhhhhhhhhhh [radio static] 06 Fox, code 3 call; 06 Fox, code 3." Cardiac arrest, FIRST thing in the morning, he-llo, wake UP people! What a way to start the day, with a dead guy.
Then a hypertensive emergency [as in, a blood pressure of freaking 260/120--dude should be DEAD, but isn't], five SECONDS after clearing from dead guy.
And an 8 month old baby with pneumonia and acute respiratory distress.
And chest pain.
And short of breath.
And car crash.
And a very broken arm.
I worked 15 hours today with very few breaks, and drove almost 2 hours to and from work.
Tired. So, so tired.
