busy night

I saved a baby's testicle last night...what did you do?
Seriously.
We went by ambulance, lights and sirens to save this baby's family jewels.
I know that its a very serious situation, and terrifying for this family...
but it IS pretty funny to think about.
My job has so many ups and downs, when things are bad...they're really bad
so sometimes you need some comic relief.
(And I'm not a totally insensitive cruel b*tch, his "boys" are going to be just fine. I'd probably think VERY differently had the situation been different.)

Hmmm. It didn't have anything to do with baby testicles...that's for sure. =D Glad baby and his boys are all well and good.

I must admit I am a touch curious just how said baby got into a circumstance to warrant him possibly losing a testicle just because it is amazing the things kids get up to.

Until I was a mom of boys I never thought I would have full scale discussions about testicles and whatnots as if its a normal everyday converstation topic. Welcome to the club.

That is pretty darn funny. I would have laughed about it too.
