past my bedtime
It’s after 9pm so I better keep this brief. First week of internship is going… well it’s going. Not too bad I guess. I’m learning a lot and getting into the swing of things. More on the specifics later, but it’s amazing how different life has quickly changed. I feel like I’m in survival mode on most nights–just grab a something to eat and hit the hay. Today I was shocked to get out at 5:30. Just 12 hrs on the job!!! Leaving me more time than I knew what to do with. At least transiently. I hit the gym for an old fashioned mudphudder workout and then ran across the street for some take bbq for dinner.
I am adjusting to the fast pace of most everything–racing to get everything done at work, then racing to get home so I can have a few minutes of free time to unwind before going to sleep. Yeah it’s crazy but it’s worth it. I’m learning a lot everyday and it’s all practical knowledge–not random minutiae that I’ll never use. Patient’s potassium is low, how much to replete with? How long to bridge a patient starting on coumadin with lovenox? It’s pretty useful.
Anyway, I’ll write more in a bit when I have a few more hours consecutively off. I hope you are all doing well.
