Phone conversation

I was on call on Saturday, and it was pretty busy. Steph had invited me for pizza, but I ended up having to do a Csection and seeing other folks in the ER. It was almost 8 and I was almost done so I called to see if there was still food left. I told her, "I would be right down after I put back this kid's rectum." She started laughing, and then I realized what I said and how it sounded. Putting a kid's rectum back is not a normal thing, this is actually the first time I have done it. Soloman, the pt about 3 yo, had diarrhea for about a week and this afternoon after going the bathroom, his rectum came out too. Thankfully it went back in ok, and hopefully treating his diarrhea will prevent it from coming out again.
