Where have I been, you wonder?
I've been tired...
and on call. As busy as that can be, I've been enjoying the new year as a senior resident. I've been studying and improving my diet. I've been a little better around the house. I've been fixing broken jaws and draining infections. I've been doing some exercising and even budgeting. I have not been blogging! --or sleeping as much as I would like, for that matter. (Something's gotta give, right?)
As I have mentioned before, as senior residents we take call for a one month period of time (which I guess just actually switched to a 4-week schedule). July is notoriously busy with more trauma than usual and a new crop of interns. I imagined things would be much crazier from a numbers standpoint and I've been lucky to have some good new residents to work with has been much more manageable than I expected. But I'm still tired (emotional wear and tear maybe?).
Luckily, only two more nights on-call and then I hope to find my way back (to the blog) and a little more time in bed. I hope you will find your way back, too!
