My First 10 Days as an Intern

So since graduation, I've spent 2 weeks in Spain, a week moving, 2 weeks of orientation/moving and last Wednesday I started on the inpatient floors at Helen DeVos Children's. And the way my schedule fell, today is my first day off! It felt amazing just to sleep in until the Pooplet alarm went off.

Internship's gotten off to an encouraging start. It's overwhelming to start any new job, let alone one where your performance and picking things up quickly effects other families so much. But it's gone really well. My 2 nights of call were at opposite sides of the spectrum with 2 admits and 3 hours sleep one night and 4 admits and no sleep the other. Ack!

I'll work on posting some Spain pics next.
