Great Googly Moogly Batman!

Well it's not 10:13 pm and I -just- got on the internet. It's been down all night - you can imagine how horrible that has been for me, what with being at work and having limited resources to search for things under. For the past 7 hours my desk has been a battlefield of dictionaries, surgical books, anatomy books, medical spellers, drug binders, pharmacological dictionaries and papers to try and help me through my reports. You really don't appreciate Google until you don't have it anymore! It's so hard to look for something when you can barely spell it (and the spellcheckers on this computer and deplorable). It's much easier to go to Google and give it your best effort and be rewarded. Without it, you're stuck searching.

I did manage to get over 1 hour 20 minutes, which is 10 minutes over what I'm supposed to do. The last report was 28 minutes long. A very long, very boring orthopedic surgery on some patients broken back. Although I will say that looking at the CT scans and x-rays was AMAZING - I found the break without using the aid of the lil green arrow that they had on another slide; and it wasn't a big obvious break either. Just an intrusion into the spinal canal or..whatever. Anyways, point being it looked neat; though admittedly probably doesn't FEEL that way for the patient.

Unfortunately there were many blanks I had to leave for my lead hand because, as mentioned above, NO GOOGLE! I was so distraught for the whole night and of course, as soon as I sign off the operative report BOOM the internet works. *Grumble*. Now I'm trying to decide if I should a) go for a smoke or b) try to look up some of the missed words on Google.

Maybe I'll do B and then A.. work backwards. Why not?

On a side note, I have a splitting headache, like - splitting. Enough it's making me nauseous. Yuck. Food maybe.. yea that might help.

Cheers!
