  Lord don't move the mountain..

...Just give me strength to climb it.
Please don't move my stumbling block,
Just lead me, lord, around it.
Don't move this mountain.
--Soulfire, Stand in the Fire

Relaxing after a burly shift in the ER. Working with the right attending/boss on a busy shift is very satisfying. There is a harmony achieved where each will see/work up the different patient, and then switch, to emphasize/modify/push through/confirm/or question each other's workup, blending, persevering, consolidating, reassesing, learning, laughing, frustrating, disbelieving, disapproving, criticizing, resuscitating, reanimating, engaging, enlisting, hand-waving, hand-wringing, consulting, sharing, politicking, magic-making, cajoling, enforcing, patronizing, brow-beating, and testosteroning our way through a shift. The only way out is through! No catastrophe too big! No work environment too austere! No PMD too unreachable! The show must go on!

Walk softly and carry a big vocabulary. Don't be inhuman. Find and greet God in every person you meet. The patient is the one with the disease. Do not get distracted. Charity begins at home. Do good and be happy. Don't just do something, stand still. Wear sunscreen. Don't get anyone pregnant, and don't go to jail, young man. Budget your luxuries first. You don't know what you don't know. People like learning, they just don't like being taught. When in doubt, go out. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Honey attracts more flies than vinegar.
