what did i do today?

so what have i done today? let me think...
  • woke up at 4:00 am. wednesdays are special.
  • went to the hospital and found out one of my patients died over the night. which was not unexpected. which was sad because i predicted he was probably going to pass away last night, and he did.
  • stuck my finger in two different butt holes. gotta love the rectal exams!
  • saw 3 colonoscopies.
  • passed up the chance to scrub into an EVAR (endoscopic abdominal aortic aneurysm repair) since i have scrubbed TWO OPEN AAA REPAIRS THIS WEEK. oh yeah, i don't think i want to be a vascular surgeon, ha. too much squirty blood.
  • ate some good lunch. and peach cobbler. oh yeah.
  • realized that my gastritis/ulcer/whateverthehellitis is starting to act up again. need to buy some PPI to fix that stat.
  • scrubbed in a laparoscopic gastrojejunostomy and got to DRIVE THE CAMERA! and i didn't get told that i sucked or anything, so maybe i did a good job? it was fun! i'm glad i played all those video games growing up.
  • got to put down some bandaids on a patient, got overly excited (because i got to do something finally) and the resident laughed a lot.
  • left the hospital after being there 13 hours. THIRTEEN! there went my gym time. (i'll go tomorrow, no big deal.)
  • came home and ate some curry chicken with H. yums.
so now i'm laying on the couch and blogging. and i'm sleepy. i'm probably going to bed within the next 10-15 minutes. but i want to watch the state of the union address. or finish it, at least. nancy pelosi blinks too damn much! and joe biden is funny because he keeps grinning and/or clapping at inappropriate moments. and i love how obama is putting some jokes in his speech. it makes it lively. and michelle can do no wrong!

i'm so excited about his weekend...i have the whole weekend OFF! and my school is having a kick ass party on friday with awesome music and good beer. gotta love music and beer. especially after a hard week. but i don't care if the week is hard. i'm telling all the residents and attendings that i really enjoy surgery and that i'm seriously considering it as a career, and so far i've gotten good feedback. this week i got an eval back from my last 2 week rotation and the surgeon commented that i had "good surgical skills". that made me so happy! and i don't care if it's a generic comment, i'm just happy that someone noted that about me.

oh yeah, and i need to put my date down for step 2 CK. i've got my permit, just got to schedule it and start studying like a mofo. i wanna get a 300! hahahaha, i kid i kid. but seriously, i have to do well. for reals.

alright, time to go to bed before i say something weird, but i guess it's too late for that. night!
