Make sure you lock the door

So I found out the hard way that the bathroom door on the peds unit doesn't lock that well. Actually, I would say the poor old filipino nurse who walked in on me found out the hard way. Oh well, nothing she doesn't deal with every day right?

Sorry for the gigantic lack of updates. The reasons are two-fold. Firstly, everyone is so nice to me on peds that I feel like there is nothing interesting to report. I mean, it seems writing everyday that everyone loves me and gives me respect would bore most people. It's only funny when I'm getting abused. I miss surgery. Second, this happened:

Medical Student: Hello small child and family with pneumonia! I see you were just seen yesterday in the emergency department and given amoxicillin. 
Small Child: (all cutesy) mmmhmmm! (big smile) (little cough)
Medical Student: Aww, how cute, here is a sticker of mickey mouse!
Small Child: Yay! Thanks! (cutesy smile)
Medical Student: What a polite little girl! Now open wide for me!
Small Child: Okay! (coughs in my face)
Medical Student: (!#$^%@) 
Small Child: (cutesy smile) sorry...
Mom: Oh, I'm sorry...
Medical Student: (you can take sorry and shove it...) That's okay! Here is another mickey sticker!
Small Child: Yay!!

So, yes, I have been sick all week and weekend. I did not know it was humanly possible to shed this much mucus onto the earth. I wish I could extract all my goblet cells. Also, I don't care if that was gross. Suffer with me!
