Feet and hands

My feet have walked many, many miles this week around the hospital. I have chased junior doctors like a lost puppy.

They have also been chewed down to the wick lately due to impending finals fear.

* I love it when patients tell me that I won't get blood. I really will, no matter how long I have to palpate invisible vein.s
