Oral Boards - Done

I've been back from DC. Oral boards are done.

Topics were anticipated. Did I study enough, hard to say... would studying more been more helpful... doubtful.

I think I did okay... but who knows for sure. I'll find out at the end of May.

At least it's over, for now.

Transvaginal Cholecystecytomy

In a word -- Yuk!

These words together mean removal of the gallbladder through the vagina.

Yuk yuk yuk.
If I had a vagina, you're not removing my gallbladder through it.

And to boot there's a Natural Orifice Surgery Consortium for Assessment and Research.

You can leave my natural orifices alone... I mean look what great scientific advances there are in this decade.

DC in the spring

Ah to be in Washington DC in the spring.

Blossoms on the trees.

Spring is in the air...


I'm in DC for anesthesia oral board exams

Its 40 degrees outside.

There's a wind advisory...
The plane was shaking like a laundry dryer as we were landing... and I swear we were going sideways for several seconds.

AND I'm taking oral boards tomorrow.

I'm a little stressed

I'm back to the books for last minute cramming... maybe a short nap.

More later.
