N O V E M B E R 2 0 1 9 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 1 4 5 I 've been blessed to check off another year as an OR nurse. Now is as good a time as any to give thanks for the good fortune and one-of-a-kind experiences this profession has given me. I'm espe- cially thankful … Thanksgiving isn't my all-time favorite holiday. Each year it feels like I fork in enough to go up a scrub size and I'm always paranoid the good eats are going to cause cholecystitis. Surgeons and anesthesia providers have a safe place to offer up their personalities. There have been moments I wanted to ask, "Do you act this way at home? And do you or would you speak this way to your significant other or children?" That I'm Southern, born and bred, and that I tend to speak slower Many Thanks Jot down your blessings. You may be surprised at the length of the list. Behind Closed Doors Paula Watkins, RN • FULL PLATE A bountiful feast is a reason to give thanks, but being too gluttonous could cause an acute case of cholecystitis.
