Where's Harry?

It seems that Unprotected Text has been removed. Anyone know what happened? It can't be gone for good surely - it's such a great blog, it would be a shame if it was just gone like that.

In other news, I've booked my occupational health appointment for medical school. My crb check came back so hopefully I'll be looking at an unconditional on track soon. (They won't take away my offer because of my hypermobility and buggered up wrist will they?)

When I go for the occy health check, I was going to do some house-hunting while I'm there. I lived at home for my first degree so to be honest I'm not really sure what I should be looking out for with regards to renting with other students. Any tips?

Anyway, I'm off to make something for tea now, I don't know what to have - there isnt much in the freezer and I've had too much pasta recently. I might have a jacket potato with something. I'll go have a look. Bye!

The Grand Round

I love going to the grand round at my hospital...... I get a free lunch and 'toys' from the reps! Today I got a laser pointer with a pen drive in it, as well as a load of sticky pads and pens for the office. The lecture wasn't bad either, it was about takotsubo cardiomyopathy (broken heart syndrome), there was even a clip from scrubs! People in the office think that I'm really keen to learn medical things when I go, but really, I just want the extended lunch time! (1.5 hours rather than my usual half hour). :-)

It's 2 years today since my grandma passed away. A lot of things have happened since then, things that I wish she could have been around for. I'm not particularly religious, but I like to think that somewhere, she is still around and knows about everything thats been going on. It sounds a bit morbid, but I'm really glad that I was there when she died (even though i can still remember her ribs cracking when i was doing cpr) . It was so sudden and unexpected but I think she would have rather had it that way than a long, drawn out illness.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I miss you grandma (and thanks for getting me into medical school!). x.
