Ok ok, so its been a long time since I've written a blog. Sorry guys, I've been real, real busy! Well since Shanghai, its been pretty much back to normal. Well when i mean normal, wake up at 7am and head to the hospital for more fun fun anf fun. In the last 2 weeks, I have been in rheumatology one week and last week respiratory. I have to admit Rheumatology was a bit of a drag!! and the only person to blame is not the doctors, but the very slow and annoying english translator!! I now know how important it is to have a highly skilled english translator!!! It made being in Rheumatology quite boring when really it should have been quite exciting learning about disorders linked with dysfunction with the immune system. In saying that though, the majority of patients that came into the clinical room complained of PAIN!!!! so I did see alot of Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Respiratory on the other hand is awesome. Not only is our english translator a genius, the doctor really is determined to educate us anyway he can, in CHINESE of course:) Although, majority of the patients complain of cough, this ward has been very educational and alot of fun.
There is so much to tell you guys, but I dont know what I have said and not said!!!Hmmmmmmmmmmm..... All of us in chinese medicine have decided that at least once a week, we would all catch up and have dinner, usually at a western restaurant (after eating rice and vegetables and noodles everyday for lunch and dinner, burgers and pizza and steak and mexican all sound so.
I have to admit being in CHina has made me more aware of things!! It has made me real careful to who i trust and talk to.
The weather is still very very hot!!! and im becoming darker and darker as each day goes by. By the end of the China trip, ill b as dark as the night sky. Hehe.... Everyone should be proud to know that, Im liking the hot humid weather and am walking to and from Hospital every day!!!! Not only that, in our 2hour break, I walk home and back to hospital. SO every day, i walk at least 2 hours:) it might be a little excessive, but Im enjoying it for now. I used to take the bus but now, I enjoy walking everywhere. It takes about 30 minutes one way from my apartment to the hospital!!! Who would have known that i would be becoming a walking freak!!!! I guess i found its a great way to clear my mind and at the same time wonder why everyone keeps staring at me in such a strange way!!!! About 3 minutes away from my house, there is a washing car place where all the young boys wash all these really swish cars!!! As I walk pass, they always have something nice to say to me!!!, not that i can understand what they are saying:) There is one boy in particular who gives me a disturbing wink in the eye, everytime i walk pass. (watch out horse!!!_ hehe...)Ah well, I cant help that my hair looks good:0 hehehe... just joking!!!
Ill write hopefully real soon again, because i am sure i have missed so so much about my life in China:)
