My two-week stint in anesthesiology is over! 🙌 I am very glad but I must say, the second week was not terrible. I was assigned to the Chronic Pain Clinic on a Tuesday and the specialist was really kind and helpful. The patience and compassion she had with every person she saw !! absolutely inspiring.
but inspiring enough for me to want to do anesthesiology? I don’t think so. I didn’t hate it, but it was a little too mundane for me. Or at least, mundane at my level. Who knows if that will change in the future?
I am back in the Emergency Department for the next two weeks, then am flung to Obstetrics and Gynaecology. 😫 I like babies and all, but that’s one of the most highly stressed departments, if not THE MOST highly stressed department. And 6 weeks! ugh
Nonetheless, it’s an important part of housemanship/internship, so there’s no harm in brushing up on skills at this moment in time.
My major splurge of this week has to be the number of books I ordered online. I went a little too ‘trigger happy’ because I have found myself with ample time and nothing to do, and frankly, the Internet has gotten to a ‘boring’ point for me. I miss reading and having Mindy Kaling’s Books I Like list show up was more incentive to spend. While I do admit she’s a big influence, the purchases I made were also books that I have seen mentioned by good friends or the Internet in general. I have been religiously checking the TRACK YOUR PURCHASE page since receiving the tracking code. Will there be a gratuitous post later this week, with pictures of the covers once the books arrive? Yes, yes there will be.
I hope you all have a great ‘what’s left of your weekend’ and have a good week ahead! x
