Before I forget, if I get a letter from HH, please open it and tell me everything it says. It shouldnt be for at least a week though.
This morning in in-patient gait training I saw the lady who I saw in surgery. She was walking! It's pretty crazy. I think I may have annoyed Liz by saying "Wow, it's just so amazing to picture what's going on in her knees right now." Over and over and over.
Also I did my first FULL eval today! It was TERRIFYING. And I felt like I was doing horrible, but I guess I did what needed to be done! Man, it is really amazing how bad you can feel like you are doing and the patients still come back to see you. I kept hurting this lady too. But she was kinda a weird case. And it was the ELBOW, which I havent reviewed in quite a while, because you dont see elbow cases very much.
Today was the second time I brought my lunch down to the cafe and ate with Liz and Sharon and some other hospital people. Sharon is CRAZY. She seems fairly old, but I think she's only late 50s, but she smokes, so I think that's why she seems older. And she just dumped her boyfriend. It's so weird to sit around with a bunch of 50 somethings who are breaking up with their boyfriends and then go and hang out with my 20 something friends who are all married.
Bitter-Kathy wasnt there today which was nice because she's pretty annoying. And I guess she broke something and everyone was saying in a mocking voice "Oh well KATHY didnt do it, KATHY doesnt break ANYTHING." And then Sharon said "Well how could she? She's never even here." It was really funny. I guess one time Kathy didnt show up for 2 days and said she had gotten locked in her basement and couldnt get to her phone. Liz can't believe she's not fired.
Okay, I have to go find the post office and mail a bunch of birthday cards and the H hospital thing.
Oh, and last night my roommate (not the Desiree' one) went on and on and on about fibromyalgia. And I kept saying, "ya, I know." "ya, I know." "ya, I know" "ya, I know, we get alot of fibromyalgia patients" "ya I FREAKING KNOW!!!!" Okay, I didnt say that last one, but I was about to go insane. I'M NOT AN IDIOT. It didnt take me 2 years of classes to learn how to run a treadmill, we do learn about other things. Sheesh. I still like the Desiree one. I actually like them both, just not when I'm being treated like that. I mean, it started from me talking about one of my patients with fibromylagia, but I dont think I even ever finished my story, because as soon as she heard that, she felt the need to educate me. Okay, I'll stop whining.
