This week has been relatively calm, work-wise. I haven’t had much telemedicine. I am not covering call. It has given me the chance to a) sleep a lot and b) catch on administrative GME things. Next week will be filled with a lot more patient care (both via video & in the hospital) but at least other things should be (mostly) under control by then!
Current shape of the day:
Write post & work out
Do some work (admin or tele patients)
Help kids with school
Do some more work (go to hospital if needed & come back to do notes/etc)
Lunch with kids
Do some more work; take walk outside if possible between meetings or tele patients
Wrap up around 5:30 pm
Dinner around 6 pm
Kids watch show or we take a family walk around 7 pm
Kids bedtime ~8:30 pm
Hang out with Josh, watch show or read
Last night was Passover. Since having children, the entire Passover experience has been a fragmented one for me (chasing kids around while civilized conversations mostly just happen around me) so . . . I didn’t really feel like I was missing much!
Josh did a very nice job retelling the Passover story to the kids (in regular language not flowery seder-style) and they did the traditional hunt for the Afikomen (matzah that gets hidden — though I think some people have the kids do the hiding & the parents find it!).
It’s weird. I feel much calmer than I have in quite some time, even though I am on call next week and the hospital is preparing for a surge. I guess I am settling in. I also have in my mind that this is going to last until mid-June and then be mostly over. I hope that ends up being true.
