Busy, busy week — I ascended to the glamorous life of a second-year fellow, was on call for four nights straight, trained all the new first-year fellows on the three dozen separate computer systems that (barely) allow us to provide efficient care at two of the biggest hospitals on the east coast, and had a great birthday (replete with a new drill from Shannon!). I only have two days left on service in the hospital, and then I move on to the research lab for a few years . It’s a little less hectic of a life, but it’s also a little less of the day-to-day patient contact that’s so much of a blast.
