Also, I did my first pelvic exam.
Feeling an ovary via the cervix has to be the most surprising, coolest thing I’ve done in weeks. (I can’t believe I legit felt it! On both sides! I mean, I always assumed successfully feeling an ovary was only a hypothetical textbook possibility – sort of like identifying a grade I murmur, or palpating the spleen – I had no idea it was actually the norm. So amazing.)
So glad I’m in medical school right now. We get to do all sorts of cool stuff.
… Even though we also get to do all sorts of decidedly uncool stuff, like… say… stopping by Starbucks at 10 PM to caffeinate myself up for a night of studying bladder cancers.
(I’m normally not a fan of staying up all night to study – but the spring play really messed with my internal clock. I apparently now think that going to bed at midnight and sleeping until noon is normal, and as a result, I have like 5 lectures to catch up on and no more sleep deficit. Thus, the caffeination.)
Final exam on Monday. As one of my classmates has said, right now it just comes down to doing everything I can to avoid renal failure.
