What I've been doing since surgery

Rest assured, no news has been Very Good News. It was a very slow recovery... until it wasn't. At a certain point I started to feel exponentially better each day, and pretty soon it became clear that I was feeling so fantastic that it was time to get back to work!

I am currently studying 12+ hours a day for the national board exam, which I take in a month. It's a big deal, and I need to focus more than I ever have before. Because of the way the timing has worked out, I have a little more time to prepare for this test than if I had not gotten sick again, which is a very good thing. My education has been quite fragmented, and I have even more loose ends and gaping holes in my knowledge than your average medical student, so I am happy to have more time to review. I have also been taking advantage of the flexibility my schedule has offered, enjoying this time of health and freedom as much as I can, considering I have to be studying full time. Here's what it has looked like! (now back to it...kidneys!)
