today i scrubbed into a c-section, made it all the way through, STAPLED AT THE END, and then was on a surgery high for the next hour or so.

i think i'm going to make it through surgery, perhaps.

also, more babies. we had a trisomy 18 today. unfortunately, the baby did not make it, but the nurses dressed the baby up and did the footprints and took photos for the family. and i think in the end the family spent some time with the baby. always good for closure. i thought the whole situation was so sweet, and the work the nurses did for the family was excellent.

and with that, i'm off to bed. 12 hour shifts are hard on the body. switching to nights next week is going to be tough as well. at least i'm enjoying myself and learning a lot. i'm really liking ob!
