Birmingham Women’s Hospital

What a difference a week makes! I have gone from feeling overly anxious about the upcoming month to now feeling entirely positive. Although I am aware that as much as it can change in that direction it can always change back again, I definitely prefer this new excitement. It does feel odd, however, that it... Continue Reading →

How To Say What Is Hard To Say

Warning- rambling, totes emosh post! I’ve found it really hard to write an update for last week. I’m still struggling on Monday evening how to get it done. It’s not as though I’ve got nothing to say, I had a pretty good and standard week for my job. I got a lot of revision done,... Continue Reading →

Evisceration (Part III)

I think there’s potential for another part after this one if you’re lucky, same warning as with the others. I can be quite graphic in my descriptions so if that’s not your cup of tea stick with my nicer posts. For everyone else, it’s on to the urogenital block! Urogenital is obviously the combination of...

Where can I find rest…

Unintentionally I’ve ended up reading that while revising anatomy and mostly staring at videos of anatomists explaining things on YouTube. I cannot fault YouTube for the wealth... Continue Reading →

If you haven’t already seen part I it’s here. Once the cardiovascular block is removed, it usually becomes quite bloody... Continue Reading →

Evisceration (Part I)

This week I have been fairly solidly revising alongside putting together a presentation for a very exciting project (should it come to fruition which I hope it does!). I wondered if some people would like me to share the contents on here, and I figured why not as long as I give a little warning... Continue Reading →

Busy?

Recently the weeks have been going slower than they have in the past. It feels like time has slowed down a bit, days not flying by like they used to. I don’t think this is necessarily a negative thing, I’m not sure why but I think slowing things down a bit can be good. I’ve... Continue Reading →

The Lavender Garden

The temperatures in the UK reached around 38 degrees centigrade this week, that’s 100 Fahrenheit for anyone who’s old school or American. Temperatures like this can be dangerous for many reasons and not just for humans but for animals too. Please make sure you do all the sensible things in high temperatures like drinking water...
