Spouse has been running a fine series of vintage valentines over on her side of the digital household. Lotsa cupids, arrows, pink stuff. Here, take a look.
I have had a little different month of February. In my professional capacity I have to maintain certification in an entire bowl of alphabet soup. Such as:
BLS-Basic Life Support. You need this before you can take:
ACLS-Advanced Cardiac Life Support.
But since the ER sees more than just cardiac cases I also need:
ATLS-Advanced Trauma Life Support, and:
PALS-Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
Optional, but one I do anyway is:
CALS-Comprehensive Advanced Life Support.
At least as I no longer deliver babies (oh, one or two ER stories notwithstanding), I don't feel such a need to keep up with:
NALS-Newborn Advanced Life Support, and:
ALSO-Advanced Life Support for Obstetrics.
In any case, by virtue of some scheduling glitches I am doing BLS, ATLS and ACLS over the course of a two week span.
So I am certainly thinking about pink hearts and such, but I have been studying so much that the imagery starts to turn into this:
Yes, yes, these are hardly "mushy" Valentines Day sentiments, but in my feeble defense I should say that when Spouse and I were first dating I was in Medical School and studied with fervor and intensity. One time I was so focused that I almost did not notice that somebody had tossed a Hostess Fruit Pie in my open second story window!
