I spent much of my 28th birthday on call at the county hospital and scarfed down an Oreo McFlurry at 3 AM in celebration before attending to intubations in the ICU and add-on surgical cases. After the shift, I slept till late this afternoon, woke up, played some video games, and went back to sleep. Hypersomnia has become my reality today.
Never the less, I’m still so thankful for everyone’s support and gracious comments over the last year – really gives me motivation to keep going! In the coming year, I’ll become a senior anesthesia resident and (hopefully) match somewhere great for my fellowship training. 🙂
