chest pain

5 Jan

How is it that the first time in my life that I wake up with heart burn is the week we’re learning about pulmonary embolisms?  Granted, it wasn’t necessarily on inspirations, and probably a little low for a pulmonary embolism.  And there are no other symptoms.  Whatever.

I am slowly going crazy.  Or I’m just becoming a typical medical student.

So, I didn’t take that many pictures over the break, but this series of my brother and niece on Christmas is pretty priceless.  We Oppenheimers can sleep through anything:

    My nephew is a very, very good sleeper. That comes in handy.

    The little miracle girl is cute as the dickens!

    This probably won’t be your last “medical student disease”; when I was an MS2 (a long time ago), I had a brain tumor. I was sure of it; I knew it had nothing to do with the fact that we were studying about brain tumors 🙂

      A brain tumor, eh? What convinced you that you didn’t have one? 🙂

      Oh, I’m sure this won’t be my last…and it’s not my first. In October, I was sure I had Vitamin B-12 deficiency…of course, it didn’t help that my biochem preceptor also suggested it :/
