So much for posting 4 times a month. It's been almost a month since I had a minute to sit down, and, unfortunately, the only reason I have this minute is because the entire Whoo household has been stricken with a nasty little GI bug. It started out with the Bean. I picked him up from daycare on Thursday and he promptly annointed me with copious amounts of vomit. He continued puking for the next 24 hours. Poor little man, they just look at you after puking like "help me!" Mr. Whoo stayed home from work with him on Friday. I was on call for the weekend, and by Sunday the Bean seemed to be feeling fine. That's when CindyLou picked up puking, followed shortly by myself. She and I puked all last night, and now Mr. Whoo is starting to get the chills and nausea, and, we just got the call from the daycare that Bean picked up vomiting again this morning (odd after almost 2 days with no sickness!) We are a sad little family today. Just pitiful. CindyLou and I slept in, and have just ventured on to ginger ale and crackers. Hopefully we are turning the corner soon!
In work related news, I had this lofty goal of not having any inductions this month. (To be honest, that is my goal every month, but with just a handful of patients due, all relatively healthy with few risk factors, I felt I'd actually be able to accomplish it, for once!) Well, that came back and bit me big time, as of this morning I have 2 40+ week patients with severe oligo, and another 39 -weeker threatening pre-ecclampsia. All three are now on the books for induction, thankfully not today, since I'm most uncomfortable straying too far from my bathroom! Also in the works in the coming months, I have 2 sets of twins on the way. I keep waiting for the 3rd set to complete the trifecta. I have noticed a little more activity on the billing front with respect to OMFH. I have a meeting scheduled to go over financials, so I'm sure she's scrambling to set things right. My application for oral boards is looming due at the end of this month. I am scared to take these boards! Any good advice for review courses? I was thinking of trying to do one before I have to turn in my list, so someone can look it over.
Sorry so short, but feeling sick and looking at computer screens does not go well together! Thanks to all that have been checking in on me. I will try to be more present in the blogosphere in the coming weeks.
P.S. Hah! This is my 100th post. A post about puking, how un-monumentous!
