You know what's neat? While sitting in a Trauma M&M, the surgeon started talking about a case he recently published. Without going into details, it was a very rare scenario made even rarer by the method of treatment, and this surgeon was the first in the world to do it (or at least write about it). Within the first few minutes, I started to recognize the scenario.

And then I realized it was my patient! I'm the one that took care of this patient through the ER!

Granted, my name isn't anywhere on this patient. Rightfully so since I did about zero percent of the hard surgical work. But ER patient. My interesting patient. My dude who is now part of medical literature.

What's up vicarious living, baby.
