That time work called me, asking if I could go in early. My patient at the time, just a little baby, had pulled out his NG tube. Mom and Dad couldn’t get it back in for anything, and they were getting a bit panicky. Could I do it?
Sure (no). I agreed to go in, and as I was driving, I was praying to God for help. Man, you gotta help me out here, I suck at putting in NG’s! Especially on angry, squirmy babies!
So I get to the house, mom is panicked. I scrub up, lube that NG to the max, and…
Get that fucker in on the first try! Like a Boss!
Mom thought I’d been sent from heaven. I never told her I wasn’t sure I could do it…lol
