Back from Italy, ate too many carbs, drank too much wine, had an amazing time. Feeling a bit jetlagged :) zzzz. Went in to the office today on my usual day off to work through all the messages. Found out that the person's license I took away before I left (she screamed at me for 5 minutes over the phone) came in and had a MOCA score of 1/30... for those non-medical types, that's really not good. I was dreading seeing this patient and am really glad she was seen when I was away by our superstar N.P.
One of our partners quit today so we'll be looking for fresh blood. Can't say I didn't see it coming.
All of my OB patients who acted up the week before I left started behaving themselves as soon as I was out of the country! score!
All in all, this 2 weeks off was a success. I'm still looking forward to going to the St. Paul's family med conference in Vancouver next month - another week off!

This week I took an extra day off in order to spend a long weekend biking in Allegheny park in NY/PA. I took ONE DAY and came home to 40 messages in my EMR inbox and a backlog of crap to deal with. My stress level shot up to 13/10. Maybe even 20/10. I felt like I never left. I hope my 2 week vacation doesn't end up this way.

I hate getting ready for vacation because it means:
1) doing more call in preparation for vacation so you can get the time off
2) making extensive handover notes on all OB patients just in case they crash and burn while I'm away
3) stressing about packing
4) worrying about crashing in a ball of fire and dying on the flight over
5) worrying that I'm going to forget something when packing

If your stomach has become noisier in the last 2 months and you are worried, fear not, I will do nothing about it when you come to see me. Staying home would probably be a better thing to do.

Over the past week my GI system has started seriously rebelling - painful gas one day, GERD, diarrhea. Each on their very own day and not at all related to what I have eaten (I think). I don't feel particularly stressed but I have started forgetting things and putting the milk in the cupboard, so maybe I'm just ignoring my stress better...
