I’m busy having Halloween fun = arrested blogging!

November 1, 2009

You’ve probably noticed that my blog has stalled temporarily.
I’ve been on a little break to Vancouver for some Halloween fun, and I’ll be back in action on Thursday Nov 5th when I start my Obstetrics rotation. Yay, babies! I’m sure I’ll have lots of fun things to write about as soon as I start. My favourite part of deliveries is seeing the look on the dad’s face. Sometimes it’s joyful tears, sometimes bewilderment, and other times, their face goes white and they promptly collapse onto the floor. We usually try and put a chair under them before this happens though!

For now though, it’s catching up with old friends and big-city culture on the agenda. Maybe the only insight you get from this post is that doctors like to have fun too. In my case, fun came in the form of dressing up as Boba Fett and dancing like an idiot with my nearest and dearest. The toughest part was trying to see out of the foggy, dark-visored helmet. Also, my jetpack was fairly heavy as the night wore on, and now I sympathize with all the patients I’ve met with macular degeneration and trapezius strains!




In the meantime, hang in there eager Canadians! I know the H1N1 vaccine lineups are a major deterrent to getting the shot but I’m so glad you are keen on protecting yourself and those around you.

    I read this on my Google Reader and thought “Wow, Doctor O got arrested on Halloween! Canadian Family Medicine residents must be wilder than their American counterparts.”

    Glad to see that you aren’t blogging from behind bars!

      hahah yeah. the title gets cut off – I realized that AFTER I published it…

      Fortunately, I’ve never been arrested. But I won’t disagree with your sentiments; Canadian Residents work hard and play hard. I usually can’t keep up with my specialist colleagues though – there’s something about having to round every weekend, study for Royal College Exams, and fight for jobs in big cities that makes them that much wilder than the Family Practice types.
