    Typing Impediment

    I just finished typing the following phrase into a patient's EMR chart: "Sputum culture positive for Serratia marcescens sensitive to ceftriaxone" and thought, well, there's a sentence you wouldn't want to attempt if you had a lisp. Along similar lines, I have developed an annoying habit of typing "tomorrow" as "tomowwow," which makes me feel like a three-year-old. Or Barbara Walters. Or a three-year-old Barbara Walters.

    Forgive the scrambled thoughts: I leave this weekend for a two week vacation, hallelujah. I'll try to post if possible, but I promise nothing as I don't know what my computer access is going to be.

    Everyone enjoy your holidays, and a happy 2008 to you.
