Not much unusual going on today for me.  Work was work – except that I got a call from a sick assistant this morning early.  She sounded awful.  There seems to be a flu like illness going around.  One of my partner’s assistants was also home because one of her kids was ill, so we were really short staffed.  I think this flu must also be affecting patients because there werer sure a lot that did not show up in the last few days. 

Tomorrow morning bright and early I will go to spend another half day in the operating room.  And I will be without my assistant unless she makes a very speedy recovery.  That will be interesting.  Dental assistants are soooo much help and I am used to working with one.  And time is always at a premium in the OR.  My dental therapist is going with me tomorrow but she has never been in the OR before so I will have to show her what is the correct procedure for setting up and such and that is the part of the whole procedure that I am not used to having to do.  As I say it may be an “interesting” morning.  Three kids to do and I don’t want to end up not being able to start my final and biggest case because I have run out of time.  Those OR nurses can be real bears when it comes to keeping a tight schedule!

    Hope all goes well then.

    Breathe deeply, keep calm and and focus. Or do what I do when there’s way too much – get angry and work faster and with more precision than you ever could when comfy. Adrenaline is an amazing concentration booster.

    Wonder why males in my line seem to die young?
