Drinking From the Fire Hydrant

Ever get that feeling that you’re just going to “freshen up” under Niagra Falls, roast weenies next to the space shuttle, or take care of that fly with a hand grenade? Sorry I haven’t been so good about replying to comments or posting as much as I’d like. Get a load of this: when I’m on call, I will be taking calls from the Hematology/Oncology service, the Bone Marrow Transplant service, the ER, outside physicians, in-house consults, and families of existing patients that might have questions. Anyone else want to throw their name in the pot? Might as well have a mysterious red phone in the room that connects me to the Kremlin.

All that to say, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. On a good note, was able to go to Oxford over the weekend and see my dad. he is in good spirits and it was really good to spend some time with him. I must claim some success as he has now watched the first 3 seasons of Battlestar Galactica and has season 4 in his netflix queue whenever that might be released (aka not anytime soon). Have received a number of updates from Traveler, our north-bound Appalachian trail thru-hiker and will post these soon as well.

Later,   Avery
