and.....they're...off!!! (as in, the socks have left the building)
these are on the way to you - a few days late, but that wasn't because the socks weren't done. (they were done a week ago so I could get them out to you in time!) Nope, instead I had a heckva time trying to postcards. Postcards? yes, postcards. Now that I've found a few I'm seeing them everywhere - and all of the people that I asked to keep an eye out for some have reported back to me that they, too, are finding them all over the place. The socks are on their way! (and should be on your doorstep early this week...)
My peds rotation ended on Friday - the last week was fairly mundane compared to the other weeks I spent in the hospital and office, and it was a nice change of pace. The themes of strep throats, flus, gastro bugs, ortho and kidney problems were just some of the things I saw over and over again. I quickly learned that the answer to the ever-popular question of "is _____ going around?" is always yes. (No, antibiotics won't always help.)
Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I start my surgery rotation. I am not excited about it as I do not have any interest in being a surgeon. I figure that if I can make it through the first week standing up, then the other five weeks will be much easier.....
