Big month

Quite a month has gone by since my last post. Finished residency (freeeeeedom!!!), epic party thrown by Wife-Bob, two weeks driving across northern Europe with Mom-Bob looking for the family roots with surprising results (of which more soon), started a new job that's been putting a smile on my face. Yesterday Wife-Bob got back from an action-packed adventure in Alaska (her 50th state visited!), and this morning she's off to her first shift as a senior in the ED at the county. Life is good. Elaborations forthcoming.

In 1999 I started taking premed classes. This morning, 13 years later, I just got home from the last shift of my residency. Feels pretty damn good to be finished.

The overnight shift tonight will be the last shift of my entire residency. Can hardly believe it....

Thought experiment

If your 85-year-old grandfather came to the emergency room at 9:00 pm, unable to swallow and not having been able to eat or drink anything for the past two days, would you want him to be admitted to the hospital?

Professional satisfaction

Every so often a case in the ER is the perfect balance of a pleasant patient who is genuinely interested in their own disease process, wants you to teach them more, and for whom you can provide effective treatment. Got two of those in a row the other night and left work feeling like a doctor.
