1 Week of Cardio done.
Cardio is interesting. Patients with way crazy conditions, some quite unwell, some where there’s just not much you can do.
It’s been quite busy for me. Not quite finishing on time. But hey the day goes by quickly.
I had a lovely registrar this week. And it was actually his final week as a cardiology registrar. He was nice and included me in discussions and even helped out with a lot of the jobs.
He said he had been saving this book to give to someone who was really good. To use and help them study. He said he wanted me to have it for being so great this week.
Then I found out that the charge nurse on my general medicine ward last rotation, had nominated me for House officer of the month.
I didn’t win of course. But it was nice to be nominated.
From my low point last week where I thought I was just the worst House officer in the world having nearly killed someone with my prescribing blunder, this was quite the opposite feeling.
It was nice to feel good about the things I do. And be grateful for people who seem to appreciate me.
It really is having the highest mountains and having the deepest rivers.
You can have it all but life keeps moving….
