I am furious with @PayPal - maybe they’ll actually fix this issue if I complain about it publicly.

I ordered my mom a present through PayPal and bought three of the item. After a couple of weeks I was sent shipping info that didn’t have any actual info. 1/
Two months later there is still no info and the items have not arrived. I contact the seller on two emails and get no response. I file a dispute and PayPal reached out to the seller who just told me it was shipped. 2/
I keep waiting and it shows up except there is only one of the three items I bought! So I contact the seller again with no response. I open another dispute with PayPal and after a while they tell me I have to file a formal crime report. 3/
So I waste more time doing that and send them the documentation. Nearly a week later they say they have a resolution - I can get a refund if I just ship the one item I received all the way back to Vietnam at MY cost. 4/
This is of course ridiculous as I shouldn’t have to spend more money to just get what I ordered or to get a refund. So I log back into the resolution center and there is no way to contact PayPal to discuss this. 5/
It’s either throw more money away and hope I get the rest of the refund or just deal with the money I already lost. I either want the other two items I ordered or want a refund of them. This is not that hard - just give me what I paid for or refund it! 😡 6/6
Update: They told me I had to pay to send back the one item but they could pay $30 toward the shipping.

After more arguing they finally agreed to give me a refund. So it wasted a ton of my time, but at least PayPal helped in the end!

At the request of several people, here is a thread on acute liver failure and decompensated cirrhosis in the ICU. Disclaimer: This is a broad overview of some key issues, but I am not a hepatologist. 1/
Let's start with a definition of acute liver failure (different from decompensated cirrhosis): It is characterized by acute liver injury, hepatic encephalopathy, and an elevated INR in a patient without cirrhosis or preexisting liver disease. 2/
Let's talk about variceal hemorrhage. It has a 15-20% 30 day mortality. Note that portal hypertensive gastropathy is common, but is uncommonly a cause of significant bleeding. EGD for PHG shows friable mucosa with diffuse mucosal oozing. 3/

Well, friends, today was my last shift in NYC after 5 weeks. I’ve worked 28 12-hour shifts in the last 33 days. I head home tomorrow completely exhausted. I am so excited to see my pets & play my piano & ride my bike, but I will miss my new friends & my patients here dearly. 1/
Things have calmed down a lot since I started here, but I’ve still only cared for a handful of patients without COVID. The ICUs are still full and I was in a pop-up ICU the last few weeks. I am worried about people relaxing and allowing a second wave. 2/
These hospitals will still be full with these patients for a long time due to the prolonged courses of COVID, and they will not be able to accommodate a second wave. 3/

Great keynote address at the @APCCMPD virtual conference this morning by Dr. Robert Arnold on "Teaching Fellows Communication Skills: How to Fit It in a Busy Practice." See the thread below for some tips! 1/
What does it take to learn?
1. Deliberate practice (and safe failure).
2. Repetitive retrieval
3. Spaced learning
What have we learned about teachers?
1. Concern for learner experience ("I didn't want her to feel bad/diminished")
2. Want to give tools ("Here is a way to approach bad news")
3. Feel responsible to give feedback ("How will they improve otherwise?")

So, I’ve been reading “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance” and was thinking about doing a “book club” of sorts, for those of you who are interested in reading along, or simply learning some of the lessons I glean from the book. Please follow this thread and grow with me!
In the preface @angeladuckw talks about how her father commented frequently on how she wasn’t a genius, but ultimately she found that grit overcame this perceived intellectual gap and she went on to win the MacArthur Genius Grant.
In chapter 1 she discusses the rigors of the “Beast” training at Westpoint. They found that those who completed the training were not more talented, but grittier and had a “never give up” attitude.
