A good night at the office

I have just downloaded Mozilla Firefox and now I can update the blog from home. At last! For some reason Internet Explorer hasn't allowed me to do this. In any case, it's taken me a while to think of something to write that could follow on from the picture posted on my last entry.

On a week of nights. Going OK so far. I diagnosed a guy with Wegener's granulomatosis the other day which was cool (not for him). It's very rare and knowing what is wrong with this guy will save his life (90% die if not treated). Friedrich Wegener was a German pathologist who was working in Breslau when he described the condition. Dr Vegas is a British SHO working a week of nights in the UK when he recognised it. It is one of the rare occasions in medicine when I haven't just felt like another cog in the NHS machine. I'm looking forward to going in and seeing how he is getting on now that he has been attacked by lots of specialist doctors who are no doubt slapping each other on the back and writing their case reports based on the work I did. Good luck to them.

In a previous post I moaned about all the gigs I had missed out on whilst revising for the exam in the summer. I managed to see the Goo Goo Dolls the other week and they were one of the best live acts I have seen for years. The support (The Tender Box) were also very good and I reckon they'll do well.

Have got a week off soon and will be staying in the UK (for a change). Even though the nights are going OK so far, they will hopefully be the last set I ever have to do. More on that to follow. I am even contemplating revealing my secret identity to some of my colleagues but as long as I can stay away from the Stella Artois I should be safe.
