Spring Waxing Flower Moon
Rain. We had a red alert, a fire danger warning over the weekend, but now we’re soggy. Soggy is better.
Kate came home with information from the Minnesota Department of Health on how to handle potential swine flu patients. We’ve had no cases here yet, but the protocols for patients with high indices of suspicion are very clear. It’s impressive. The level of detail has been planned some time ago and gets implemented in a reasoned way in response to evidence, not panic.
Kate has a sense of eagerness about it all. She likes the edgier aspects of medicine: arrests, lacerations, dealing with a possible pandemic. I’m glad it’s her doing it and not me. I’d be edgy myself rather than professional.
