It's over. Thank God. Jake visited this weekend, and we honestly just had the best weekend ever. I'm so much happier. And my good news is that our next visit begins in 3 weeks and 4 days. And at that point, we'll be driving back to Colorado where I will be for 5 weeks. 5 weeks with my husband!!! I can't even describe how much of a difference this makes in my daily happiness. I have something really great to look forward to!
Now, onto my last few stories of family practice.
Story 1: a mom is in for a physical and has her 3 year old daughter along. Now this 3 year old is absolutely adorable! She spoke just as clearly as your or I and her conversation skills were amazing. She came over to me and said "I have a secret to tell you." I bent over and she whispered, "I call my mom a banana." Oh my goodness, the secrets of a 3 year old are just the best. She then put up 5 fingers and said "I have this many secrets in my head to tell you." Sadly, I didn't get to hear the rest of them. She also told me that I was "the best doctor ever." Again, I had to laugh since I didn't even touch her. As I've said before, 3 year old kids are my favorite to talk to.
Story 2- I walked into a room and the man says "Wow, you are a lot prettier than Dr. D." I kind of laughed, and talked to him about his high blood pressure. When I went to take it again, it went up, way up. He told me that it was me. Dr. D comes in the room and the patient tells him that the scenery is getting better around here. Dr. D looks out the window and says "Oh yeah the sun is out today." That's not what the patient was talking about. So Dr. D takes his blood pressure and afterwards goes "Well, I must be uglier than the other two because it went way down." LOL.
Up next, internal medicine inpatient. I can't possibly tell you how excited I am to have an easier rotation. I don't have to be in tomorrow until 9 am! Amazing :) These should be happier times around these parts.
