The light at the end of the tunnel

Weeks of: 2007-11-04 - 2008-01-20

Abstract: The light at the end of the tunnel

Mood: Ill, but ok.

What went well: I cleaned up on the comps.

What needs work: I need to be faster.

Elucidation: I skipped class today because I woke up with a sore throat. I thought I'd post as I lay on the couch. I'm the prodigal blogger, the one who lets weeks and months go by between posts. School and clinical is much the same now as my earlier posts.

I do exams skillfully and with efficiency. I'm enjoying the process. Yesterday I did a sinus series. I slamm dunked it. I was pleased because the tech said my films were pretty. I did the series from memory. It made me feel good that I was able to pull views out that I did in practical last year. At my hospital, all head work goes to CT. I've been doing an outside rotation. It's been nice because they get a lot of views and exams that I don't see at my hospital. My last day is tomorrow.

Can you believe I'll be done is less that six months. I enjoy school. But it will be nice to make money as a tech. I'm still working at the hospital. I do a lot of inpatient spines which is challenging. This is one of the reasons I don't post often: I'm working 50-60hr weeks.

Goals for next week: Post to the blog. Get all caught up with school. At this point I'm nearly done with the comps I need.
