I feel like many of my recent posts I've written after a call night, so I thought I should balance things out with a pre-call post.
Going into a call night is somewhat exciting as many questions run through my head:
Will I get any sleep?
Will someone code?
Will I have some interesting patients?
Is there going to be good dinner at the cafeteria?
Will I know enough?
Will my PDA run out of batteries?
Where did I leave my stethoscope?
Then come the answers:
I hope so.
I pray not.
Occasionally. But there are always milkshakes.
Never. Absolutely never.
Only if there is information on it I absolutely need.
Who knows, but I hope all of you appreciate that even with becoming a doctor, deep down I am obviously still the same absent-minded person.
