Thanks for the support about my OR issues. I think one of my favorite supportive comments made to me today was a friend who actually knew a general surgeon who once threw up inside of the patient.
Nothing better than a quick round of “Could’ve been worse” to make you feel 100% better about vomiting in the corner of an OR, right? I mean, I don’t even want to think about what would be going through my mind if I were that surgeon. (Or that surgeon’s lawyer.) (Or that patient.)
Monday is my histo/pathology test. I should be fine. However, the Monday after that is my head & neck anatomy test, which… eurgh. Listen, the sum total of my knowledge for that unit is something like:
- The twelve cranial nerves and their foramina of choice.
- The knowledge that apparently that’s not even close to enough and I need to know actions and branches.*
- A vague suspicion that at least 80% of these branches are invisible.
- The head bone’s connected to the neck bone.
So that’s, you know, coming along.
