100-hour work week

I worked 100 hours this week. I'm not even kidding. I was on call 3 times. Two of those call nights I didn't sleep AT ALL. I have never felt so tired in my life. On Friday I had about five cups of coffee and I was still struggling to stay awake. This is nuts!

But somehow I'm still enjoying it. I love the kiddies. I respect my colleagues, and feel privileged to be a part of Pediatrics. And I still get excited about interesting diseases and cool procedures. So I guess that's a good sign. Intern year hasn't completely jaded me. :)

Well this tired little intern is going to veg on the couch tonight. More later!
