It’s funny how a single day can carry so much excitement! I have started independent duties from today in the department, and was posted in the out patient today, and to cover all the cases posted as emergencies in theatre. It was great – all Mondays are however terrible days to work on I guess, after the lovely rest of a weekend! Getting one’s engine running again to face the week is a task that all Mondays put us onto!
Anne got us a bit worried today, with a bit of tummy pain. It’s difficult to say when it’s the real Mc- coy! If we should take the pain seriously and pop off to the labor room to check… But the fact that she is OB-Gyn is a useful because she’s able to use their criteria and tell the mild contractions from the real thing. I’m on 24 hour call in the ward tomorrow, I hope like anything that Koby doesn’t plan on arriving tomorrow! That will really bug the rest of the registrars in my department if I hand over the bleep to go and be with Anne … but if it has to be done – it has to be done!

I’m a living example!
