Monday - A minute-long patient encounter
Several events conspired to make this Monday a challenging one.
After a difficult day, I sometimes pull up the two photos below and look 'em over for a minute or so.
Severely malnourished, immunocompromised child.
The same child after ARVs.
"Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay."
- Monday's Child (a nursery rhyme)*
*Actually, it seems that I should be most weary of Wednesdays and Thursdays.
