It is hard to believe that I’ve been working at Eastland Family Practice here in Charlotte for almost 5 months now. It seems that just yesterday I was attending the Christmas party at Dr. Hall’s house and meeting everyone for the first time. Tonight was the night where we all met at Dr. Menscer’s and began the month long process of saying goodbye to our graduating residents. It has been an honor and a privilege to work along side such a fine group of young physicians. I wish them well as they embark upon their various careers and hope to cross paths with many of them in the future.
I also wanted to comment on how much I already feel a part of the residency staff here at Eastland. It’s is very much a family, and I feel like a long lost cousin more than a stranger and for that, I am grateful. At work and at play, this group is a good fit. It’s nice to know in your heart of hearts that you have made a good decision.
Clinic was great today. Precepted all morning with lots of interesting cases with the residents, then powered into the afternoon clinic full force. My first seven all showed early then the last three either cancelled or no-showed. Thus, I was done at 4:30. Note to those who don’t work in a clinic – this NEVER happens. All in all, a great day.
As for the writing, not much done today, not even any editing. Was gone from the house from 0745 to 2200 and barely stopped moving the entire time. Just enough time tonight to answer e-mails and drop a blog. I do, however, hope to finish editing the last few pages of Chapter 13 tomorrow and then hit Starbucks tomorrow afternoon on my much vaunted afternoon off and knock out Chapter 14. We’ll see how that goes.
Have a great end of the week everyone!!!
