Morbid curiousity

with 4 comments

Our chief resident mentioned that there would be a D&E (dilation and evacuation; essentially, a second trimester abortion) this morning (feels like yesterday to me!), and asked if I or the other med student wanted to watch. The other med student offered to let me go if I wanted, and I accepted, because, well, new experiences.

I’d like to write a blog post about it, except I’m not sure yet how to do so without a lot of rather sensitive, graphic imagery that I’m not sure my readers would appreciate, so I might just write one and not publish it. Or just write about other aspects of it and not about the procedure itself. We’ll see.

(It was essentially medically indicated and not elective).
