PIGI?

She had low abdomen/pelvic pain for 3 days and was experiencing headache symptoms. On my paper that I take into the room with me to keep my notes straight since my memory lasts approximately 15 seconds, I wrote:

PIGI
N/D
vag bleed

Okay, so I remember why I wrote the last two, but PIGI? What? I walked out to the nurse's station and got on the computer to put in the secondary, and stared at the paper for a couple minutes trying to figure out what I meant by PIGI. I still don't know.

I'm going senile in my old age.

Sounds like "P 1 G 1" As in the obstetrical way of writing out number of pregnancies and number of living children. Especially since you were looking at a woman with a vag bleed. Hope that helps.

Wow! Raise your hand if you feel dumb.

Oh, is that my hand waving around in the air? While my other hand is hitting my forehead?

How do you spell duh?

Perhaps more importantly, how do you write 1?
