The month of December in an operating room is the test of our endurance, patience, and determination to get it all done. People are usually eager to get their surgeries in before the end of the year and when they have deductibles met. I get that...I embrace the work that keeps us from the unemployment line! But it does make you weary too. Some are getting short tempered. Some are getting more overtime and are happy about that! Some got their knees injected with cortisone yesterday so they (me!) could continue to "get 'er done"...This part is a small shout out to our Donna...We Miss You in the eye room!
Stephanie is doing a bang up job...but I think she wants to hit Guppie with that cartridge...this week was a twofor eye week. Full days on Monday and Wednesday.
Yes, we may look like we're laughing but it's really us squinting to keep the tears from flowing!
I noticed Dr. Gupta was working in his stocking feet...he says he can feel the microscope peddle better with his shoes off...so I got him some slippers...Chicago Bears slippers....they were a "White Elephant" gift from a few Christmases ago. He wore them all day...They scream "Dr" don't they?
I snapped a small piece of our Christmas decorating in one of the few windows in our surgery department. Well, it is a bit festive I think!
This has absolutely nothing to do with work...which is why I decided to show it..It makes me smile at the end of a long day. My new stove and microwave...I now have light over my cooktop. (when I remember I actually have a light! I've cooked without one for a while now) It also has a working vent fan. So now I can create lovely meals...but it's also a great place to put carry-out food! Well, I'm heading off to Chicago to see my Mom for our annual Christmas gathering with all my siblings. Should be a loud and fun good time. I'm looking forward to it. Have a good weekend everyone!
