Today, in images.

Saw a 14-year-old girl today in the practise. She had sex last year and Mom wants her to go in for a pap (a good idea). Poor child, she was scared stiff. I don't blame her. But Dr. B was super nice, did everything she could to make it easy on the girl. And she made it through with minimal pain and torture - even smiled. It was a heck of a job. So was trying to makes sure that she understood the vital importance of either abstaining or using birth control to her having a life from now on. At least her mom's good about it, not like the psychotic women who think that if they tell their daughters not to have sex they won't.

I did two paps (on grown women, not the little girl) today. Dr. B watched, and backed me up on the bimanual exams. First one was rough. She was so patient with me, though, and so understanding. Second pap went very nicely, except she's a neurotic weasel of a woman who was on birth control pills and didn't tolerate them (they made her nauseated) so she didn't bother telling the doctor, just quit taking them. No wonder she got pregnant.

Also tried a venipuncture. Note operative word tried. Went through the vein. Whoops. Thanks to my patient for being, well, patient. Nurse did it right on the other arm.

Went to Suncoast to spend the $45 gift certificate we got for ordering Vision of Escaflowne on a triple-points weekend. Notably, we only bought 1 Anime DVD of the three we got (I passed on Utena, but only because it was the second volume and $40.), so I now own the first volume of Oh My Goddess. Also bought Sound of Music and Moulin Rouge (Angel's been itching for it), but managed to pass on Strictly Ballroom (Mandy, I miss you sometimes).
And now watching Chobits. Chii! It has been decided that we will buy the Chobits DVD's as well, as Angel is enthralled with Sumomo Yay for Chobits.

Oh, and one more thing. For rabever:
Happy Birthday, Mom!
