Grand Rounds Tomorrw

The weekend has flown by quickly as usual. It was a bit of a flashback to medical school to pull an all-nighter last night. Tomorrow I am speaking for general surgery grand rounds on the topic of transportable ECMO. I'd never heard of it before residency, so for those who would ask, it is ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: a sort of artificial lung to keep babies alive when their lungs aren't working. It was a pleasant surprise to see that I wasn't completely useless today. I ran a mile with B. and then played raquetball with him for an hour. Not bad for an old guy. Anyway, hopefully tomorrow the video works, my uniform doesn't fall appart, and I get up on time. I threw in a picture of our transport systems for fun.

Have fun and love life!
