Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays, but it’s Labor Day today so there is no real post today. I know that I planned to post the followup to Prelude to Next Week today, but I didn’t realize it was Labor Day. That post will come out next Monday. My apologies,Sensei

Labor Day #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Medicine Mondays… for some reason my hosting service is being slow, so I’m trying to write a short post before it times out again. I just wanted everyone to consider this question: What would you do if you didn’t go to medical school? The opportunity cost of 4 years of medical school and 3+ years of training (6 for me). What would you have done with that decade of your life? How […]

I didn’t think too much of it so I got up and walked around a bit, but the ache didn’t go away and got progressively worse through the night. By the end of my shift it was just straight up back pain. I managed to get through my shift but trying […]

It took a little while to figure out, but I eventually got it […]

PHP and Me #illumedati

Internship 2019 #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. This isn’t really a complete post today, but more of just cleaning up some old posts and follow-up. To today, we’re just going to be Catching Up. Snoring Update I’ve had some ups and downs with my snoring tube things. They worked really well for the first few weeks, but then something changed and they started to not work. This was primarily because they kept falling out of my […]
