It’s funny the little things you notice.
We had to IFT transport a 19 year old intubated patient on a vent last night who had apparently been high on cocaine and cannabis and caught his girlfriend with another guy in in a car. In his rage he jumped on the car to try to stop them from getting away and the other guy apparently sped away with lover boy on the roof.
Car v. man never ends well, so needless to say I got pretty fucked up with a couple of skull fractures and additional less serious injuries.
However, for whatever reason I was fixated on a small tattoo that I could tell he had gotten within the past 24 hours(I used to basically live in a tattoo shop so I am quite familiar with these things) and I couldn’t help but think how crazy this guys day must have been all together. It’s amazing how a small detail can elaborate on a much larger story.
