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.
