The last week has been quite chaotic, but a lot has happened that I want to write about, so I will do my best to catch up this week!
The first and most unusual piece of news, was the birth of a baby boy to some friends of mine today. Although they are a wee bit (4years) older than me, they are the first friends to have had a baby which has made me feel old. Mother and baby are doing well, and I;m really happy for them, as they strike me as perfect parents!
Now it starts to make me worry that people I think of as 'my age' are having children, and have proper jobs etc. I always knew that doing Medicine as a post-grad would involve some sacrifice, and self-denial, but at times in the past year it has seemed like I am giving for no feedback.
Anyway, I'm tired after the DIME weekend, where one of the themes was on sacrifice......but more on that story later.
