My last two days in Tenerife

A travel blog entry by btfreder

This is it. I'm sitting in my residencia now on the final night of my time here in Tenerife. I cannot believe I've been here for five weeks and that I won't be going to the hospital on Monday...it feels like I've started a new life here and now I'm throwing away something I got so used to! Either way, I'm excited for what the rest of my summer, year and life hold, so though I'm sad to leave, I'm also happy to go.

These last two days have been absolutely amazing! It was ...

Gynecology

... baby and giving her permission to discharge. It was actually very heartwarming to see such a happy couple receive good news from Laura; dire situations like this one--where an extremely premature pregnancy is forced to happen--don't always end well, but it looks like this one did!

The people around me were mostly vegetarians, so I got to eat a lot of ribs and chicken--practically all of it actually--so by the time we got to the bus I was so full I felt like I was going to throw up. It was so worth it though.

It was so cool to meet our new fellows, and I loved going to the beach and seeing the mountains, so I had ...

Week 4

A travel blog entry by btfreder

... know where this patient would have ended up in the US, but I guess it does make sense to have a doctor that can attend to all of the health problems associated with a patient's primary illness.

Paco is also one of the COOLEST people/doctors I have EVER met. He wants to practice his English, so he speaks to me in English most of the time, and I speak to him in Spanish. He helps me a lot with my Spanish knowledge, and I help him with issues of pronunciation ...
