Bad Days and Good Days

I have just had two great days at work and they couldn’t have been more different. Yesterday I saw a terrific number of patients, many of who weren’t that ill but needed to see a doctor; today I saw many fewer but they were, on the whole, much sicker. I did my part to make people better, and felt good about my profession and life in general.
Should I ever need to remind myself what a bad day really is, all I need to do is read Newsweek’s article on Israeli trauma centers.
