Stranger things have happened in hospitals

Osteomeylitis. Today the word slipped out of my mouth, without my filter blocking it. I stared at it as it hung in the air.

Of course, my first thought was, "Wait. Did I mean to use that exact word? Did I miss a syllable? Why didn't I just say that the infection had spread to the bone?"

"Next week, I want to try giving you two patients," says my instructor. "I think you're ready."
