I'm still alive...


I'm just dealing with some sick folk. The inpatient rotation of medical school is extremely demanding. There are only two shifts per day, and we take care of some rather complex patients. I've just finished my first month on service and have one more month to go. I'll have much more time for fun stuff after that. Right now, I'm just working my six shifts per week and counting my blessings when I get to see the sun.

Is that an "actual case," or a "representative case?"

I don't post actual cases for patient privacy reasons...but it is representative.

Oh the joys of human medicine. I only though it was fun when people brought me the dog that ate the bra.. that DID NOT belong to the woman who owned it.

Define alive? I think life consists of more than work, paperwork and sleep. Which sounds like what you are doing. So are you alive or surviving?
