Posted:And so I'm home. And I'm post-call. And that was the last call I ever have to take.

I still remember my first call, the night I first saw a baby born. It was so exciting. And then it became painful. And then it just made me mad, and tired, and unhealthy. And it's over. And I never have to do it again, I hope.

So now I have to go into work on Monday. And turn in my ID and a self-addressed, stamped envelope for my last paycheck (how's THAT for an insult?). Do my last clinic. And... bye

It's over. I'm done.

I'm a real, friggin' physician. I made it!

Posted:Well it's officially official. I turned in my ID badge and got my last paycheck.

And then I went back to the PICU and was unable to get in because the door was locked. So I grabbed my ID (well, the empty holder) and tapped it against the RFID pad. Needless to say, nothing happened because I forgot my ID wasn't in it. So someone else had to let me in.

You also have to tap your parking pass against a contact plate to get out of the parking lot. I don't have the pass. So getting out of the parking lot today will also be fun. I think I'm going to have to jump the curb. ubblol

Posted:Don't tell me about self-addressed and stamped envelopes. My university required that for getting my degree to me, because they couldn't have possibly paid the approx. 1 Euro (if EVERYONE did that - wait a minute, there were only about 20 people graduating at that institute each year...)

It brings a little tear to my eye to change you in my mind from the "doctor in training" to an actual doctor...

Methinks I will PM you about anti-aging tips for the both of us...
