Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just found out both nurse practitioners will be on vacation when I cover the consult service next week. We went over the current patients and I am pretty scared Fortunately, the fellow who was on service this week will be around, but please, God, don't let me hurt anyone!

Don't be ascared. It's not like you're building a wheel, or something.

That's something else I haven't done in years, but I think it's gotten easier. It's probably a good sign that I know I'm potentially dangerous.

Thank you! So far, my general medical concerns are chronic hairy cell leukemia, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, systemic coccidiomycosis due to an unidentified congenital immune deficiency in a young man with cognitive delays and apparently incidental thyroid cancer, autosomal dominant interferon gamma receptor 1 deficiency with an as-yet unspeciated systemic mycobacterial infection, and sickle cell disease. Just routine stuff.

Routine stuff for a teritiary care center. Feel free to rely on your consultants, especially heme-onc, ID, and immunology.

Fortunately, I am the consultant, not primary, on these poor people. The neurological issues are serious and gnarly enough.

I have hubs, rims, and spokes galore, and am in need of wheels. Day after day after month after month goes by and I build no wheels. I very much enjoy building wheels. But I don't take well to doing the measuring and such. Therein lies the holdup.

Steel is real.

It's also a great material for pots and pans.
