The last couple days have been rather uneventful what with almost all our attendings being on vacation or at conferences. Wednesday was lecture, Thursday had no operations or clinic. We finished rounding at 9:00, then proceeded to stay and study at the hospital until after 3:00. We should have been allowed to go home at nine; I decided at the beginning of this rotation not to let anything phase me so I was OK, but the two other students were steaming by the time we were finally sent home. Friday we had a couple of cases in the morning, I scrubbed into a hemorrhoidectomy—I hope I never have to have that operation. There again was no clinic, so the residents took us out to lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Very nice of them. I had to go in this morning to round on patients with the resident, and have to go in again tomorrow—payback for having the last two weekends off. Fortunately we round later and leave by ten or eleven on the weekends, so it is not too bad, but unfortunately I have to miss church.

What a great attitude to have! Don't let anything phase you in a negative way. Great example. HV
