Yesterday wasn’t a good day. It started off promising; I bumped into Bec and we chatted, I got distracted and left my towel on the bench. The new resident asked me to help look at a case over his shoulder, and I only reviewed the bit he was questioning, not the whole scan. 4 hours later I found out that there was something incidental I could’ve seen if I’d looked at the whole study. I should’ve looked at the whole study. All three of my RSNA abstracts were rejected, which was a little disappointing. I got home and my evening’s plans were cancelled (Pete had forgot, plus was sick, so hope he gets better). I tried to Skype Daniel but he was in transit. Then my Saturday plans were cancelled. I went to bed. And woke up at midnight!
Today was better. I was rostered in CT in the AM session again, but if I have to report another friggen HCC post RFA 4-phase liver CT in the next month I’ll scream. I met another of the new fellows today, a guy from Portugal. It’s a more international bunch this year. Violette came by to say goodbye. It will be more than a year until we see each other again – assuming we both go to RSNA or RANZCR next year, or I fly to Sydney to visit family, Violette and Anna.
Good things today: I bumped into Ur at lunch at Starbucks. Coffee is a popular thing to get at lunch. I was in TGH US this afternoon and the sonographers there always make me smile. Canadian Tire catalogue in the mail has many thing I’d like to buy, like a half price tent. We already bought a tent but this one sleeps 13 people! We could live in it! I put it in the recycling before I committed myself to buying a camping table, gas burner and a new drill set.
I need sleep. Went to the gym from 20:30 to 21:00 tonight – it was packed. But I found my lost gym towel and I did chin-ups until I couldn’t do any more. Hopefully I’ll sleep right through tonight.
