I had five starts in two hours tonight. I got every one of them on the first try. Only one of them failed to go into the vein on the initial poke; I fished around and got that puppy, though. My first successful fishing expedition.

Call me the Phlebotomizer.

These were my first starts in ten days; obviously, I did none while in California and then Friday night, my last night in the ER and first since going out west, there were no starts to do. No patients in the ER at all. It was like everyone decided to stay healthy for the night. Awfully dull for me, though.

I’ve got 42 hours in the ER so far. I’m guessing I’m more than two-thirds of the way to completing my requirements, hours-wise. Right on target according to my initial estimation.
