Me: Hey, quick question: what format do you use for the write-up of a neuro exam?
Boyfriend: … Format?
Me: See, I’m working on my write-up. And in the “motor” category I usually list strengths for both flexion and extension of the major joints, then the same thing for DTRs. But it takes up a TON of space. Maybe I shouldn’t write them in list format? Is that how you usually do it?
Boyfriend: .. No.
Me: Oh, okay! How do you write it up, then?
Boyfriend: *scribbles* Here.
Me: Thanks, let’s see wha- …. “Cranial Nerves II-XII: Grossly intact“?
… I should probably just be thankful for his help with pathology.
