I must apologize to the faithful few that read this blog for the lack of posts lately. You see, I had a bit of an internal struggle with respect to what to say last week. I just completed week 3 of the Gastroenterology block and was reluctant to post because the material covered was all about sh*t. Yes, I mean that in the most literal sense of the word. I learned about all manner of diarrhea, steatorrhea, constipation, as well as colours, volume, floaters and sinkers (The list is exhaustive and I only mention a few). I really must commend the Gastroenterologists who taught during the week, who spoke so passionately about poop without hardly cracking a smile. It’s probably just my immaturity showing but I giggled like a school boy throughout.
Anyway – I thought the material might be a little inappropriate given that my mom reads this blog (hi ma!) – thank goodness my grandma can’t figure out how to turn the computer on. So – for those of you out there in cyberspace who are thinking about getting into medical school, just remember – sometimes your going to have to deal with some crap, but it’s ok- everybody poops.
