The World Is A Carousel of Carnivals

volume16frontispiece.gifAh, so Cherry Ames was able to see the “latest” in radiology equipment! But she didn’t have Radiology Grand Rounds to help her understand the art of x-rays and scans.

Now that I think of it, what we have today would seem like something out of a Jules Verne novel in Cherry’s world.

Check out this edition of the Rounds at Sumer’s Radiology Site.

Why I work where I work: we put margarita umbrellas in the oral contrast the patients have to drink before an abdominal CT. They get a big kick out of it. Until they have to drink it.



And over at Hannah’s Place, aka Milliner’s Dream, we have the latest edition of Pediatric Grand Rounds!

It went up while I was at work, so I will have an enjoyable time going through the submissions, and I’m proud to say that Emergiblog is represented in the count!

Check it out! You’ll be as happy as if you used Dr. Harter’s Liver Pills.

What, did they think the liver had a direct connection to the rectum in those days?

There’s a new carnival in town and our resident ER Chaplain Susan Palwick is gearing up to open “The Carnival of Hope”.

Check out the link, find out what it is all about and be sure to submit to the maiden edition on September 15th.

Susan requested a submission from “Emergiblog”, which always gives me immediate writer’s block, but I’ll manage to send in a post…or two….

Trivia note: the illustration to the right is credited to “Maude Humphrey”, and I believe that is the mother of Humphrey Bogart. She used to use him as a model for some of her paintings/illustrations.

I hear his daughter, Leslie Bogart, is a nurse.

    Margarita umbrellas! Brilliant! I always joke about “ER lemonade” — and I’ve even heard thirsty patients say, “Well, at least it’s something to drink” — but the umbrellas are priceless.

    And thanks for plugging my new carnival, Kim!
