Thankful that…

I’m thankful that my head is attached to my body. OMG. Today, in my latest bad habit, I left my loupes in the OR which is the equivalent of leaving a thousand dollar bill lying around. Granted, that’s an improvement on yesterday’s laptop misplacement and this thousand dollar bill is highly customized to my inter-pupillary distance but still, the madness needs to stop!

I did feel slightly better in that right under my loupe box was the scrub nurse’s expensive tablet that he had misplaced. But only a little bit better.

Elisabeth had a recommendation for a laptop bag that looks quite nice. But you know what I need more? My large lumbar pack I wore during my ski patrol days. It was like a really large fanny pack that went across the lower back. It had lots of compartments for the first aid supplies. If I embraced this bag, it would also indicate I’m truly in middle age since it would be a pure embrace of function over aesthetics.

Also, I wouldn’t be allowed to bring it into the OR. So that wouldn’t solve the loupe box problem. Maybe I need a system of tethers and attachments so if I forget something, it will simply trail behind me like a bunch of cans attached to a newlywed couple’s car.

  2. Ha! Whatever works, eh?

    I 100% had to look up what a loupes was – so that’s what those are called! I learn something new every day.

    A different idea – you could get a set of Tiles (they are little tracking devices) and attach one to your laptop? I have AirTags on my keys, which is a similar idea.

  3. Yes, I think everything needs to be tethered and dragged behind you, ha ha… OR you could try Elisabeth’s suggestion- I’m thinking of getting my husband AirTags for Christmas.
