I forget that people outside the OR talk a little differently about stuff.
To clarify: I am not taking out people's eyes and cleaning them. That does not happen all that often. (I have learned to never say never when it comes to OR procedure.) Most of the time, the eye stays in the eye socket.
I am learning to scrub in and assist the eye surgeons on various procedures. If you have a bleed in your eye, a detached retina, I want to be right there.
It is sooo cool seeing the inside of the eye. They also have the best toys. Retinal stuff is just like little tiny laparoscopic procedure. Cannot wait to learn more.
In IF news, baseline is tomorrow. They assigned me a room at work, so I have to come in as soon as I can. Unfortunately, my appointment is not until 8:45 AM. I may try to get there early on the off chance the Apprentice can do it sooner. Sigh. If this is the worst that happens, I think I got off light.
