The second day of work was a little more interesting. We went to do rounds in the Pediatric wards and saw a lot of patients. Most of them were lively and running around. I started playing with a five year old girl who offered me her stuffed animal. After our rounds, my rotational group and I were offered to do a TB test and to drain a TB abscess. Not knowing how to do either of the two, we attempted the procedures. We took blood, did the draining of the abscess and the the TB test. After that our day at the hospital was over.
Our huge group decided to go to fan fest last night to watch the Germany v. Spain semi-final game. After my 20 minute nap, my roommate and I made our way to meet everyone else. We squeezed 10 people in two toy cars and made our way down to the beach. Once we got there, we decided to party. We all had two hours to spare before the game actually started. (Pictures to be online soon). With beers and food in hand we sat on the beach and got ready for the game. The only problem was trying to fit 16 people into a small area to sit and watch the game. We saved spots, lost spot, got stepped and got sand in our pants but it was worth it.
We watched the entire game on the beach. When Spain scored a goal, the crowd went wild. Flags started waving and vuvuzelas started . . . . being annoying. It was fantastic. The hardest part of the evening was rounding everyone up and getting back to the cars. It was an adventure. I was having a blast until I realized it was one and I had to wake up for work at six. Everyone else was in the same boat though so we all would probably fall asleep at work the next day.
This morning was a slow morning. It didn't start off well when our driver decided to arrive before I got my morning coffee. It's okay thought because I got some at the hospital. All we did today was rounds. We are all hoping to get back early today to get some sleep time.
