Another one down

SO, this post finds me at the end of another birthday, and the start of another night shift; I can't think of a better combination; I've been musing on near misses recently which is entirely too much philosophical bullshit this close to the start of my shift, but I might come back to it.

Good things this week - picked up a fella with recurrent PEs who was in danger of drifting through the system with other diagnoses.
Meningococcaemic boy is improving

Bad things this week - sent a woman home a bit precipitously post treatment for ?anaphylaxis. However I know now that there can be significant withdrawal PV bleeding with adrenaline; who knows, I might even have exposed another pathology early. That might be a good thing, but for now - a bad thing.
There's more to come; have faith, hold the line etc
