july in the lab?
hmm, could there be someone new working the machines responsible for measuring thyroid hormones and cortisol in the lab? because i got no fewer than six consults yesterday, mainly for ‘rule out adrenal insufficiency’! i know from being on the elective that this is . . . atypical.
my adrenals pumped this compound out yesterday even if the patients’ couldn’t!
with 3 inpatients on our team and the consult flurry, it’s probably a good thing that i pumped myself up yesterday morning. because i wound up arriving home at 8 pm, and still didn’t have everything done.
but it was still okay. i didn’t implode from arriving home at the late-ish hour. josh and i still got to eat dinner, AND i still fit in the studying i had planned (30 minutes of growth/development review).
the motor milestones (above) aren’t hard – it’s those block-stacking skills! i don’t think most of my clinic patients HAD blocks to stack. they did have iPhones, though . . .
and now for something completely different
all this work talk! if you can’t tell, i’m slightly preoccupied with my job right now. i apologize, because it’s probably getting boring for you readers accustomed to more variety and prettiness on this site.
so, allow me to introduce a new wednesday feature: i’m going to call it “what’s on your . . .”
with the end of the phrase to be completed with an item such as ‘nightstand’, ‘to-do list’ or simply ‘feet’, i thought it would be a fun way to share inspiration and the little things that get us excited (and make us happy).
today’s question: what’s on your iPod?
i filled mine with a rather random mix of old and new albums, and i’m rather liking the juxtaposition! a few of the selections:
♥ la roux, la roux
♥ tori amos, under the pink (yeah, i rocked out to cornflake girl on my run on monday! brought me back to 1996.)
♥ the shins, wincing the night away
SO: what’s on your iPod? i’m always looking for new music, so i’d love to hear your suggestions! plus, tell me i’m not the only one who enjoys rocking it out to taylor swift . . .
workout: 45 minute dave farmar yoga podcast. and my legs are sore today! sadly, yoga does NOT relax me the way a good run (or even elliptical session) does, even though i am consciously TRYING for it to have that effect! weird. i still think it’s a good workout/stretch, though.
scrounge dinner: i had no time yesterday evening (see above), but i did have fresh and local tomatoes and basil! oh, and fresh, fabulous hillsborough cheese.
board prep: 30 minutes on development.
