Children's Hospital

The children's hospital is AMAZING. I love it so much. Kids are hilarious.

I especially enjoy how they hate having ventolin (albuterol for all the Americans out there) by mask. Seriously, I have never heard a kid scream such bloody murder before. Other fun times include several broken legs, MRSA open wounds, and croup croup and more croup.

Then there is the PICU. So sad. One 5 year old girl came in a week ago with stomach pain. She now has stage 4 cancer and is missing a kidney! So it is really quite depressing sometimes.

Also - there is a bitchy preceptor here too! Why must there be one of those everywhere? I hope to hell I am just a nice preceptor once I finally graduate (if I finally graduate.. and get a job).

In the midst of all this fun (essay writing, working for free) we have decided to sell our condo. So for the past 3 weeks I have been working my ass off re-painting, and fixing up all the little things wrong with it. I am tired.

And I wish I had something more entertaining to write. I will work on that.
