Hey!

Oh man...what a long day. Practicing anesthesia from 5:45 am- 5:15 pm....eeeeeeek! We did some internal cardiac defibrillators today which was pretty cool. Met an 86 yr old that walks 2 miles every day, just quit practicing dentistry 4 years ago, and takes complete care of his wife who is losing a battle to alzheimers. What an inspiration he was.

Ran 3 miles yesterday...back is still a little out of sorts...but its getting better. Definitely loving running again!


Hope everyone is having a good week :)

What a long day! It sounds like the program you are in is really preparing you for your career. While it stinks now, it will have benefit you once you are out.

Glad the back is getting better.

School?
It's Summer vacation!

I hope your back is getting better and you're not sizzling in the heat.

I'd prefer not to be the first or last patient of the day.
