Today was exhausting! I expect the flood of patients will be unabated tomorrow well into the foreseeable future. It would be most helpful to me if you set up a triage area.
Send me only the most urgent cases, especially issues of sever bronchial distress, black spittle, festering wounds, or pediatric cases with coughing or serious injury. These I must see right away.
For the rest, could you please handle them personally? I trust your skills as equal to my own.
Alas, I fear we will miss the little "half day off" we discussed. Next month, for certain.
