heya diary,

i'm now in the library, after a ward round this morning at 7.30am. Woke up at 7am, thinking i was late! thank goodness it wasn't that bad. now... where did i stop the previous time?? ...

For the past week, I've been really busy, going for clinics and the such. Anyway, think hte last time i stopped was last wed/thurs. On wed, 10/9, i told you about what happened with my partner on the firm. the one with the ward round incident. Well, for thursday, 11/9, i was supposed to have gynae outpatients in the morning, but there were only 4 patients, therefore the registrar gave us some teaching first, then let us go off early, to go read up on ectopics, prolapses and dysfunctional uterine bleeding. I didn't do that, coz i went upstairs to take a look at obstetric scanning and CVS (chorionic villus sampling) instead! it was really interesting, to say the least. In the afternoon, was supposed to have a urogynae clinic, but had to go for a compulsory Family Planning workshop at St Helier's. It was on different types of contraception, for both males and females. After that, i went back to George's for a Family Planning Clinic (from 6.15pm-9pm!!), to see contraception being put into action, and i must say, it is intriguing to see people coming in for contraception, for various reasons! =p

anyway, went home and just conked out. The morning was a rush of activities. went for TOP clinic (termination of pregnancy) in the morning, left after following a patient around, went to my reg for some more teaching about the menstrual cycle and the roles of the various hormones, followed by me going to the DAU (Day Assessment Unit) to see a patient whom i had send at the antenatal clinic that week. she was supposed to have an elective c-section on monday, and i said that i would come to observe it, but i didn't, coz i woke up late! =O Anyway, that friday night, i stayed in the labour ward, and got to assist in 5 deliveries! in addition, i also got to see an emergency c-section performed at 4am in the morning! was there from 4pm Friday till 8am Sat, so just went home and crashed TOTALLY. only woke up in the evening, and stoned in front of the tv for the rest of the night. =p That's my whole Saturday gone. =/

Ok, got to go for my antenatal clinic at the moment, therefore will continue this later on. =)
