Part 2: Participation Sky Ridge Hospital Previously, I attended the emergency room at Poudre Valley Hospital due to the absence of potassium in my roommate’s immune system. Recently, I myself was hospitalized; not the way I intended to participate in an emergency room environment. It was the Friday night after Thanksgiving and the excruciating pain in my abdomen began to quickly intensify. I lay on the ground in the fetal position trying to hold back the tears but it was all too much. I was rushed to Sky Ridge Hospital around 8:00 p.m. and the drive there seemed to take a life time. Reaching the entrance of the emergency room doors, I immediately lay on the cold tile flooring once again to minimize the pain I was experiencing. Once I was settled in with IV’s and pain killers, an ultra sound of my stomach came across twenty five gall stones in my gall bladder which called for surgery. One of the nurses who assisted me informed me that she would rather give birth to a child all over again than experience the pain associated with gall stones. The typical patient that requires the removal of a gall bladder is a forty year old, overweight woman, who has been pregnant; not my characterization. Being admitted to the hospital for several days gave me an overall insight as to what I was previously observing as a visitor when my roommate was hospitalized. I was able to pay close attention to the things going on around me, imagining how I would react to the situation if I was an outsider from another culture. Throughout different cultures, rules form the basis of how one may perform depending on the circumstances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
