MedBlogs Grand Rounds 3:17

Poetically arranged though impossible to know to whose blog you’re going: Six Until Me.

And, unfortunately another of the ‘themes’ next week.  I’m not done with Grand Rounds (yet), but I’ve given up hope of appearing in them again for the near future.

I’m off All Day!

One of the curse/blessings of working irregular shifts is not actually having an internal clock in the ‘I’m working, I’m off’ sense.

I thought I was working this evening, and was steeling myself to nap, etc in preparation, then looked at the calendar, and Eureka!  Off!

 

Really, it’s like getting a vacation when that happens.  Or, maybe I need to work a little less.

Bird Flu: Next Month (joke)

I put the joke in the title, as last time I wrote about bird flu symptoms I got a lot of search-engine hits, and I felt a little bad about that, as it was a joke.  So is this, but…

At work, one of my genius colleagues has spent a lot of time reading about bird flu, studying the medical experience of bird flu, and is the de-facto emergency expert on bird flu for our hospital.  He’s a terrific resource, and very pleasant to work with.

And, he asked for the entire month of February off.  We’ve kidded him about doing it because he knows something, and he laughs.  But he’s not working next month.

All I know is, if it happens in February, he’s got some explaining to do.  Probably from home, though.
