Weekends

Referring back to my last post about sleep, I am the kind of person who uses my weekends and days off to rest.  A lot of people like to do as much as they can, to either get things done, or do something fun.  This weekend, and most weekends, I like to sleep late, catch up on my DVRed shows, and maybe watch a movie, read, or work on school work.

Once in a while, I will go away for a weekend or have a lot planned, and by the time I have to go to work Monday morning, I'm exhausted.  I tend to space busy weekends out so I don't get too run down.

The wait that morning was incredibly long, my 2 other surgeries in the 9 months prior had been very early and a pretty short wait.  I cried some more (no one should be surprised by this), and finally headed into the prep room.  I met with my surgeon one last time, and kissed my parents one last time.  As I waited in the cold, dark, cement hallway outside the numerous operating suites, a surgical resident marked the incision sites.  I knew there would be many small incisions, but having the…

Cushing's Awareness Challenge - Day 29

Cushing's Awareness Day

Over the past 8 years, I have spent a few Aprils blogging every day for Cushing's awareness.  I will not be blogging daily this year, but don't want to let the month go by without spreading some awareness!


April 8th is Cushing's Awareness Day because it is Harvey Cushing's Birthday.  Harvey Cushing is the father of modern neurosurgery, and he also was the first to discover Cushing's Disease in one of his patients.  You can see a drawing of his patient (Minnie G) in many text book articles about Cushing's.
