Day two on my new job. Treating patients has been an exhilarating experience. It’s still stumping me when I analyze their samples, but the other doctors on call say that soon enough I’ll have a better grasp of it and be able to diagnose my own patients. I’m getting there. Slowly. And I can’t wait until I can treat the patients all by myself, from exam to meds. That will be an exciting day. One of the doctors even suggested I buy an analyzer for home use, and run like metals and minerals through it as practice, give me more experience for work on the machine over all.
And I think I might look into that. I think it’d be fun to work on some of these things at home.
When I went to check on the new patients coming in, I was surprised to see Kassandra and Jaqueline being checked into the hospital. Both were presenting with weird symptoms. Being my family, I made sure to be the one to check them out.
I wanted to make sure that my family got the best care. Nothing is too good for my sister-in-law and niece.
First I made sure that Kassandra was settled and examined. I analyzed her samples, entered them into a computer, and then transferred her case to the doctor so he could finish diagnosing her.
While the doctor talked to Kassandra, I examined Jaqueline. After swabbing for her samples I analyzed them and transferred her case to the doctor as well. By the time he was stepping in to look at Jaqueline, Kassandra was ready to be given her meds.
I was able to treat Jaqueline just before the end of my shift. I love that I was able to not only help people, but my own family.
I got home just in time to watch Mom pull a birthday cake out of the oven. With heading to work first thing this morning, I almost forgot that it was the twins birthday. Luckily mom was all over it.
We gathered the boys and sang to them before lighting the candles.
First up, was Leo.
Leo’s rebel streak and artistic side came out a little more in the style he chose.
Corvus blew out his candles next. And he looks a lot more like the conservative twin now.
Pyxis was a little bummed that it wasn’t his birthday yet. But I told him not to worry. His birthday would be soon, and then he could join his brothers in the land of being a teenager. He seemed to take that pretty well over all and looks forward to his birthday. I think ti’s also because he doesn’t want to be the only kid around the house, which at the moment he is.
