Almost there

Whew!!!!! I just looked and there is LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO!!!!! In 29 days I will officially be a Doctor and I cannot wait.

I am in the middle of my next to last rotation. It is a combined 4 week rotation of Pain and Palliative care medicine. So I finished my 2 weeks of Palliative medicine and it was quite depressing and quite impressive at the same time. I was having some weird dreams about death and dying while I was doing my Hospice time. However, I did get to go on home visits like doctors used to back in the day. It got me thinking that I would like to incorporate house calls into my practice one day, maybe. Of course, I would need my own practice first. But I digress.

Right now, I am in the Pain Medicine portion of the rotation. And I really want to learn about pain management, which is what I want to get out of this rotation. After that, 2 weeks of Radiology that I have to make up from last year and then I am done!!

Last week, I was able to get out to the driving range for the first time in 4 years and I intend to do that a bit more often. Eventually I want to get my swing back and go for 18 holes. Then, as long as I can go, I would like to the do the Alumni Golf Outing and then do more fund raising golf games in addition to just going for fun. Now if I can only get my brother out onto the links I can have my golf buddy. I already have a fishing buddy in my oldest daughter and a friend from medical school.

Exciting times, exciting times.
