Day 5/7: over the humpApril 23, 2016
Oops, missed a day yesterday. We have reached day 5, which I consider “over the hump”, as far as call is concerned. I already rounded today, and the end is in sight. I am very thankful that this week hasn’t been quite as crazy as it often is. Especially the nights! Honestly, I wouldn’t mind call at all if it weren’t for the nights. Maybe someday things will be set up differently (perhaps as electronic medical record accessibility improves?) but for now it’s just a necessary part of my job.
So I will take the good weeks as a gift and remember to appreciate them!
Last night we attended a Passover seder hosted by Josh’s parents. I have a lot of complex thoughts about religion, but it isn’t something I want to write about here. That said, the family gatherings are so lovely. And Annabel did a great rendition of some song about frogs landing all over the pharoah’s body parts and belongings.
Today, thus far I have:
– completed a 5 mi run (got up early!)
– rounded/finished notes on inpatients, AND finished backlog of outpatient notes
About to head back home to relieve my parents, who have been “on call” for Josh and I all week as our nanny took her (much-deserved!) vacation. They have been amazing but I think they are tired out . . .likely will plan on timing our vacay with G’s next time, although I imagine watching A&C will only get more fun/easier with time.
