The title is misleading because I don't have an infectious disease (thank goodness!). And if I did, I certainly wouldn't be running!
But, what did happen was that I spent the week out of the PICU, and in with the Infectious Disease service. And, as I'll get to a bit later, this led me to having some great workouts!
I must say Infectious Disease this week was a great change of pace. Scratch that- an amazing change of pace!
Never once did I hear the word "stat" used. Decisions were made, but not every with a huge sense of urgency behind any of them. And certainly while antibiotic/antifungal/antiretroviral treatments are extremely important, and life saving at times, it just can't compare to the day to day in the PICU.
That being said, I learned a ton. One of my [many] weaknesses is antibiotics...and I guess Infectious Diseases in general. Rashes creep me out, if that's any indication! So this was a great experience for me.
And who wouldn't like to be a part of a service that started at 9 am and got to leave between 4 and 5 pm!?!? OK, well at least I did. The fellow is pretty much on call 24/7. But I got a sweet end of the deal!
Oh, and I greatly took advantage of the extra time in the morning...I was able to run 4 times this week! I'm pretty sure that hasn't happened since before I started grad school! Holla!
Who wouldn't love running with this amazing view!
*Even on an overcast day, the sunrise was still trying to peek through!*
*Gorgeous, bright and sunny morning!*
And to top it all off, I have a 3 day weekend filled with some bachelorette party and wedding fun! Hope you have a great weekend in store as well!
