I'm back on inpatient medicine. That means longer days, earlier mornings, and not much of anything else.
I had forgotten how much I love seeing patients in the hospital every day.
How much I enjoy eating a hot breakfast every morning.
How much I love being there when my patients are sick, and thinking through how best to make them better.
How fun it is to work with students and teach them a little bit about being a doctor.
How much I love being there to comfort families as we know there is nothing else to do, and making a patient's death just a little less bad.
It's been a good, long, tiring, learning-filled week.
