OR

This is the last week of my internship in thoracic surgery, and I had to say that until yesterday, I couldn't wait to for it to be finished: surgery doesn't interest me, and most of the other students that are working with me in the unit are complete slackers and a pain to work with.

But today, I went to the OR (which happens about once a week if not less, because I'm not really enthusiastic about it) and the surgeon was great! If only he had been like that two months ago, I might have been much more motivated. He moved aside so I could see what he was doing, touch a lung, a thyroid, do some stitches …

I think he was happy a student came down to the OR. The funny thing is that though I rarely do, it seems that I'm the one who does it the most, and now he thinks I like surgery (a fact that the interns in the unit took only two weeks to figure out was false).

And maybe it's stupid, but hearing the head of the unit tell me that he had noticed the other students (well, not all of them) had been doing nothing felt really good.

Okay, maybe I'm still impatient for the internship to be over. But at least I had a good day!
