    Here We Go Again

    If you saw my office right now you would plotz: Charts, charts everywhere. I was here till eight-thirty last night and I'm still snowed under, but I've got to leave now 'cause I have to go to a nursing home and see one of my patients.

    The office happening of the month has been a bird nesting in the tree outside one of the exam rooms (we're on the second floor). We stop by several times a day to watch the mama and papa birds take shifts, feed the babies, etc. Today I watched one of the babies get fed: the parent stuck its beak down the baby bird's gullet and proceeded to regurgitate food for it. Ugh. My comment to the nurses was: "I've got your child support right here - BLURGH!"

    The other happening I wanted to let you know about is that I'm moving up to a corner office! YEAH! The MD who's been there for 16 years is moving to a different satellite office across town and I'm next in the pecking order. I feel so special.

    More later. Sorry to be so brief.
