The anti-productivity fairy has officially swatted me with dust because I just fell asleep trying to process pages of drug names, their mechanism of action, side effects, toxicity antidotes (I always want to write/say anecdote). My attempts at optimism are waning.
Have I mentioned that I joined the public library chain? I haven’t had a library card for maybe 15 years, and I LOVE it! John says it’s painful, but I actually think that studying surrounded by rows and rows of books and books is kind of lovely. And it’s summer and there are all these little nuggets running around, and I cannot wait to share this with Ari. Hopefully she’ll have an easier time getting her first library card than I did. I remember that I had to be able to spell my full name in order to qualify–do you know how hard it is for a four-year-old to spell “Oppenheimer”? Well, maybe I was behind the curve.
Med fun facts of the day:
- It’s not HIPP to have lupus. (Drugs that can cause SLE-like syndrome: Hydralazine; INH; Procainamide; Phenytoin.)
- With seizures, I BITE My tongue. (Drugs that lower seizure threshold: Isoniazid; Bupropion; Imipenem/cilastatin; Tramadol; Enflurane; Metoclopramide.)
Ari sweetness of the day (the last I already posted on FB, but too yummy not to repost):
“I love you!”
“Oh? Do you love be back?”
“I eat your face!”
