Did not manage to get up at 6am to go to the gym this morning. Have started coughing. There’s an URTI going around. Explains yesterday’s headache. Work was busy today. I had a PGY1 Pathology Resident. Postgraduate Medical work is different in North America to Australia; doctors enter training programs (“residency”) straight out of medical school! The doctor that I had with me all day is going to train in pathology, after a year’s general rotations. I tried to explain the day’s ultrasound cases with pathology relevance. Thankfully RANZCR fellowship exams required me to make pathology notes (for an MCQ and a viva) and I was able to at least share some of my Powerpoint notes on relevant topics (e.g. the usual thyroid nodule surveillance, testicular and ovarian tumour ultrasounds).
I ate lunch at my workstation, but made sure to get a coffee at 15:00. 3 stars to go until Gold Starbucks card.
We had dinner tonight at the all-you-can-eat sushi down Church St, with Lauren and Pauline. Between us we had at least 9 serves (they are small, like tapas) of chicken kara age. The girls are planning the coming week, as Lauren is visiting Toronto for a week. Lauren had written down a timetable, complete with weather diagrams, on the train to Toronto.
My plants have all recovered from last weekend’s drought. 8 of the 12 chilli plants are now huge, for their pot size. Super happy about that.
Niagara on the Lake peach festival tomorrow. Then possibly driving 2 hours North in the night to look at some meteor shower.
