This week is my last week in palliative care. My only home palliative care patient sadly went to hospice today and has taken a real turn for the worse. Hopefully she'll still be there when I visit the residential hospice on Thursday. I'm not sure that I'm ever going to be a "palliative care physician" but I certainly learned more about looking after my own patients in the community until end of life.

Next up is MSK - a mixture of fracture clinic, hand clinic, arthritis program, rheumatology and OR time in ortho. I'm not really looking forward to 2 months of that! Here's wishing I didn't just request all my remaining vacation in June!
