Call Day 2/4. Feeling pretty good today, but maybe ’cause we haven’t had to scrub into many cases. Also I’m on non-trauma today so there hasn’t been a lot of fast paced action, but all our surgeries got pushed to the night time. I don’t feel all that tired right now though, but I partially attribute that to these special fridges in the cafeteria that only open after everything else closes with free snacks inside for hospital staff. I would probably gain a lot of weight if I was a surgeon.
3 things I’m thankful for: the opportunity to observe and take part in surgery, my classmates who have all been very supportive and collaborative, free diet coke from the fridge
