surgery: day 1 (orientation)

Yep, I'm already overwhelmed.  Can I go back to peds?  It is going to be a long 8 weeks!

My advice is to carry power bars (or some gluten-free substitute) in your pockets. My strongest memory of surgery was of not eating for most of the day and of almost passing out from hypoglycemia in the OR. (At least three times requiring that I be escorted from the OR by an annoyed scrub nurse.)

Good luck with surgery, and hope you enjoy it. I personally loathed it with an intensity that I reserve for only the most loathsome of things, but I've heard rumours of strange people who actually love it. Here's hoping that you at least fall somewhere between the two extremes.
