Back to the Grind

It’s 10:10 PM here. My alarm is set for 4:15 AM. Need to be at the hospital by 5:30 to meet with the pediatric surgery team. My week with Plastics is over. This week will be on Pediatric surgery.

My senior resident told me that I’ll be in the OR tomorrow. I’ll be scrubbing in on a Nissen fundoplication procedure (due to GERD) and an intestinal malrotation case.

Spent the last while trying to read up on the treatments for these two conditions as well as trying to brush up on the basic anatomy of the abdomen. It’s been a while since I have bothered with anatomy — at least in this sort of detail.

So it’s off to bed for me. Hopefully I remember the stuff I just read.
