Honestly Ashley

Today I am thankful for:

  • Toradol, motrin, and the occasional Percocet
  • My health insurance
  • My general good health
  • Colleagues who remember what it’s like to be a single woman with no family immediately available and who make themselves available if you need anything.

Someone asked about toradol. It’s like extra extra strength motrin. It’s available in a pill form, but I’ve only seen it prescribed that way once or twice. It can be given as a shot or an IV formulation. The doctor gave it to me as an IM shot yesterday and then again today when I went by to pick up my prescriptions.  I give it to kidney stone patients with normal kidney function all the time and it’s the best thing for kidney stone pain I’ve ever seen.

There are so many great things about being an attending physician (and so many terrifying things) but hands down the best part is that in my field working 6 shifts in 7 days is the exception and not the rule. So, to prepare for 4 shifts in 4 days (after 3 consecutive days of work) I am taking myself out to dinner.

My dad’s been hounding the title company I chose over things related to real estate that I don’t understand. Today, I had a conversation with the agent about closing. She had forgotten that I planned to close by proxy and started going on about how it might be a problem. I said, “Oh, that’s ok, my parents offered to come down and do it.”  She immediately stuttered and started talking about how it would be very easy to close by proxy. 

TL;DR: My dad’s a pain in the ass. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

I wanted coffee, so I got up extra early after a shift that ended an hour and a half late to grab coffee on my way in.

My boss wanted coffee, so she’s late.
