QuestionI would love to follow you, but some of those images are too... Eugh for me to look at all the time lol. Love your blog though! Answer

Hello! I don’t post that much so you don’t have to look all the time! It is rather gory at times though, I admit :p

QuestionHello Chris, you got a good stuff here on your blog. Just want to ask are you a doctor or a nurse? Answer

Hello! Thank you very much :) I am neither at the moment. I am currently a HCSW/HCA/NA (whatever you want to call it!) somewhere in the giant that is the NHS. I do plan to train to be a doctor though.

Awww… twin polycystic kidneys.

Intravitreal injection

I used to have a recurring nightmare where someone would paper cut my eyeball… it looked just like this in my head!

Wrankle? Ankrist? Anklewrist? Whatever it is it’s awesome!

I think it might be infected…

Bit broked…

Severed sciatic nerve

Extensive Aplasia Cutis

This is apparently known as a “swinging heart” caused by a severe pericardial effusion… o_O was my reaction haha

Was all it took for my nice quiet shift to go absolutely mad. One patient aspirated her dinner literally just after her SALT assesment and said she could eat (speech and language therapists do swalloing assessments in UK hospitals. No idea if it’s the same else where!). On top of that the lady opposite her went septic in an hour and had a temp of 39.4. Queue fast bleeps for medics and anaesthetists and my bay being a scrum of people!
I did see a lot of things that I haven’t before and I think I may have to seriously look at anaethetics in the far distant future. Obviously have the small matters of getting into medical school and graduating first haha! Text heavy post but writing things down is a very cathartic exercise I find!

Hope everyone had good days :)
