It’s been a big week. I felt like week 1 on surgery (last week) was mostly orientation and trying to figure out which way to spin when the scrub nurse helped me into the surgical gown. The second week of a clerkship is always a little better…still felt totally out of sorts with limbs flailing and heads spinning, but not like a complete burden to both surgical team and patient.
This week consisted mostly of hospital-eat-sleep-repeat, with little slivers of studying and no reflection or writing. Therefore, I’m backdating some entries that I want to make sure get written before I forget some truly novel (to me) moments!
