I finally have a unit assignment. Another summer student and I were both rather attached to the neonatal ICU/labor and delivery assignment, with strong second preference for critical care. After a week of talking back and forth, our supervisor finally told us today "Draw lots. It's biblical, at least." So I'll be spending the rest of my summer on trauma team - working in the ER and following trauma patients who move to surgical ICU. It's a good team - both Tripp and Ryan have had excellent experiences working on trauma team. It should also prepare me well for my on-call shifts, since they'll basically be more of the same.
Speaking of on-call shifts, however, I had one last night, which means I'm going on hour 37 with only a couple of short naps. So I'm going to give my full attention to the rest of Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and then head off to bed very, very early.
*edited to say: yeah, that used to say "adieu," but i realized that the only people who would get that don't usually read here. so i changed it.
