I want to talk about the trip, but I still don't have the pics yet. And if I don't do it at the same time, I'll forget to ever post the pics. So you have to wait, sorry.

Work was pretty good today. Spent lots of time doing fluoro exams. Helps make time go by faster. But then that means I spend more time with the Dr's. That's not necessarily a bad thing, I really like the 2 who were working today, but I hate getting chastised and it always happens with a Dr.

Today it was "Don't push down when I'm trying to draw up the medicine, I've never stabbed anyone in the thumb before, but I don't want to start."

I'll try to explain the process. The Dr is sterile, I'm not. I hold the bottles of medicine, show the lable and read the expiration date, then flip it upside down so the Dr can stab a needle into the rubber cap. I have to hold the bottle in one hand, while steadying my wrist with my other hand. You can't help but push against the needle as it's going in. If I didn't, then my hand would move and he wouldn't puncture the stopper.

sigh. I think you can never get it perfect. Maybe the Dr's just like to remind us that they are 'better' than us?!?! Who knows.

I did get to take my first actual skull series today. Before now I'd only done 1, and it was just 1 view. Today it was TWO WHOLE VIEWS! enough to qualify for the skull series to comp. YAY! And of course Michelle comped me because she rocks :) I mean because the films were perfect....yeah that's what I meant.

Tomorrow and Friday I 'get' to work 230pm-11pm. Fun fun. Shouldn't be too bad. After 430pm it'll just be Dan, Mike, and myself. I'll be sure to take a book to read....
