ugh, anything with 'ick-you' as the last phoneme is bound to be severe pain. NICU, PICU, MICU and the dreaded VA-ICU, 'VICU'. there's occasionally a save, but too often its a futile misallocation of health care dollars on people who should be on morphine drips at home. depressing. but keep ya head up! they can hurt you, but they can't stop the clock!
