Text 23 Aug 1 note Creators

The world needs smart people to build things. We need employees who invent things, entrepreneurs who create things, and freelancers who design things. We need secretaries who make jewelry as a side project and stay-at-home dads who write amazing novels. We need more leaders, not more followers. We need more creators, not more consumers.

And perhaps the most important thing to realize is that we not only need to create for each other, but for ourselves as well.

Text 21 Aug In a place where the atmosphere can change in mere seconds.
My partner and i stood near the reception to the ER. 
We were called out of the pediatric ER by the receptionist because of a teenager at the front desk. When we met the teenage girl and took a brief history, she informed us of swelling on her left eye w/ pain. We told her that we would like to do an eye exam and take a detailed history in the ER but she chickens out and decides to leave with her friends. (She probably had viral conjunctivitis but we can’t be sure now can we.)
After they left us, we started to have a light chat with the receptionist. This was when it happened.
A woman bursts through the doors crying and talking hysterically, she was followed by another woman, considerably calmer appearing; carrying a little girl in her arms and with a boy who was about 5-6 years old walking along her side.
It was difficult to make sense of it all in the panic and i was still trying to figure out who the patient was.
They started walking towards us but the receptionist and us both point her into the ER. One of the residents was immediately at the side of the women asking questions. The keen nurses nearby listening in; upon hearing the patient was the child the woman was carrying, immediately guided them to the adult section of the ER as the pediatric section was full.

The seasoned doctors and nurses were quick to respond whilst the clerks (ourselves included) and the interns were caught mid-decision between wanting to help and trying to run away. We all ended up overriding our instincts to bolt and went to try to help any way that we could.
It was only as the mother let go of the child and laid her down on the bed did i see how ghastly the child looked. 
Her skin was chalk white, she had no movement, her breathing was arrested and she just lay there motionless. 
While the emergency team were trying to assess her; moving her face, checking her pulse and other vital signs…she just remained as she was. A blank stare focused on nothing.
Rhythmically pumping her chest, trying to bring her back from suspended animation, the team worked together; each knowing what they were responsible for and focusing on just attaining their goals, be it inserting an IV line or maintaining the resuscitator.
Finally, when the head physician attempted to do an intubation of the patient to reestablish an airway, he noticed something odd.
With tweezers in hand, he reached at the back of the girls throat and pulled it out. 
At this point, one of the senior clerks let out an ‘oh fuck’ and then her body shuddered in disgust.
Ascaris Lumbricoides. A parasite. A worm.
He pulled out 8 of them, each roughly about 11cm long.

The surrounding parents in the ER were all frazzled and kept coming up to me to ask me what was going on and what had happened to the girl and all i could and had time to say was, ‘Worms. Make sure you eat properly cooked food’. (ascaris spreads via contaminated food with ascaris eggs.
These are parasites that escape your intestines, get into your blood stream and work their way to your liver and lungs, it is then that the larvae work their way up your lungs and get coughed up and swallowed back into your stomach where they mature into adult worms. This was what stopped the girl from being able to breathe, her airway was too narrow to let them all pass.)
For those wanting to see what they look like had they succeeded and matured in the gut: http://learnzoology.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/ascariasis-roundworms-in-the-rectum.jpg
As bad as you can feel for the little girl, i couldn’t help but feel worse for the parent. To have to suck up all her emotion and process/act while still in a state of shock. The woman who i thought looked the calmest of the two females, broke down in stages. She felt it the worst.
While bringing her child to the ER in her arms
While seeing everyone rush around her child
When being asked to wait outside
While the time edged on, minute by minute
When the doctor came out to talk to her
When they showed her the worms.
