Busy Busy Busy

Super busy with rotations.  I feel like it is going to be so long until I graduate, but then time goes by so quickly.  I start interviews in a few weeks for residency.  I got an interview at every place I applied.  6 for 6 baby.  Well, i'm going to get back to the business of being a doctor in training.

Sister visits, new apartment, and other awesomeness

Katie is coming to visit me this weekend.  I can't wait.  (And yes this post is a direct result of Katie's order on facebook.)  We are going to see the OKC baseball team, and we might even let David tag along if he is good.

David and I have slowly but surely been working on moving into our new apartment.  It's been quite an experience. 

As for the other awesomeness, there isn't really anything else.  Well, that's not entirely true.  In 1 year and 10 days, you can officially call me Doctor.  :-)

David and I have officially found a place to live next year and we leased it today.  Here is the link to the apartment complex:

Our apartment apparently overlooks the lake in building 9.  We will be in the Hidalgo.

You know you are jealous.

boredom and medicine

For everyone who thinks medicine is like er and grey's anatomy, let me just say that nothing could be further from the truth. Let me run u through my last 4 days.

Wake up 5:00
get out of bed 5:30ish (what? Don't judge me!)
Shower, get dressed, leave apartment 5:30ish-6:30
Arrive at work 6:45ish (i hate morning drivers)
Sit and wait until 7:00
Morning table rounds -where we talk about the patients we have to see today. 7:00-7:30ish
See patients 730ish-1000
Do rounds 1000-1100
Do second batch of table round 1100-1230
Lunch 1230-1:15
Stare at the residents and pray for something to happen 115-?
Go home ?-600
Arrive home ?15-700 (i hate afternoon drivers)
Eat dinner, relax, watch tv, read, whatever i need to get done ?-10/11.
Go to bed 10/11
Sleep and repeat.

As u can see in medicine there isn't much excitment for 99% of the days. Which is good for patiens but absolutely brutal for med students.

Baby Delivery

On the third day of Family medicine,
my rotation gave to me:
3 pregnant ladies
2 new born babies
and a delivery performed by me.

That's right, I, Amanda Louise (Wiss) Klass, delivered a baby today.  And it was the best delivery I have done.  I would also like to say that I am not a dropper (unlike some of those football players in the Super Bowl last night).  And to show me how grateful he was for my awesome delivery, the brand new baby boy proceeded to pee on my gowned arm.  The event looked something like this:
On the next contraction, push.

new phone, new adventures, and new discoveries

I recently purchased a new phone and have been working on discovering everything that it can do. I'm pretty sure this will take years and years, but i have made a few discoveries. The first is that i can write blogs from my phone anywhere. I know, amazing right! It's also given me many adventures in that i am finding that apps aren't always in english even though the title might be. So hopefully this new phone will allow me to blog more or at least make the resolution to blog more.

The next post i make will likely be related to adventures in apt hunting this coming up weekend with links to the places.

sad day

yesterday was a very sad day for me.  at work we had to tell a patient that he was HIV positive.  He cried a lot.  The doctor did an amazing job of comforting him and it really taught me a lot.  it really puts ur problems into perspective when u witness something like that.

Then when i called my mom to tell her about it, she told me that Hazel the one eyed chicken that she had died sometime yesterday afternoon.  I know how much mom loved that chicken (even though she had talons of doom).  but she was a pretty sweet chicken- talons and all.
