Right now. But I'm putting it off to dash off a blog.
I worked 91 hours last week. It is getting old. Some days I look at radiology attending positions just to remind myself that it won't be like this forever.
A patient I got really close to is probably going to die tonight. I've gotten in the habit of checking on her several times and day and again one more time before i go home. It's especially hard to leave oncology patients for some reason. I guess because most of them were going about their business when they got a crappy cancer diagnosis. It's a little different than the ones who seem to come in and out of the hospital playing the Poor Me card for painkillers or attention.
I think I actually like the Palliative Care patients the most right now. Since I'm not the final decision maker on treatment, something I can do really well is explain things to families and offer comfort.
