An auspicious beginning.

The Peds Neuro residents were fun when we met them, and R loves to tease. Service is small and light; we have one patient each. I like being back at this hospital - it's light and airy, the nurses wear cheerful colours and the hallways smell of the most recent meal. This, O Best Beloved, is of varying degrees of savoury, more often not than so. But most importantly, this is a place where children come to get well, and those few who come to die do so with grace and dignity and good cheer.
It is a good place, politics and wrangling and money aside. A healing place.

And I have just come from an excellent and very thorough lecture on how to do a neurologic exam, allaying my fears about that aspect of neurology. This afternoon, after a bit more research and some lunch, I have orientation. Hopefully orientation will come with a lecture schedule which will not ruin the abject spoiling I am undergoing.
I don't have to be in early except to round on my patients before 8. 8 AM. This is luxury, O Best Beloved, and rumour has it we may not be working weekends if the service is light. Hallelu.
