The Home Stretch

We only have 4 weeks left for this semester! We have finished all the lectures and labs so all that is left is clinicals, tests and projects.

I had my midterm clinical evaluation. It went well so now we are on to the next clinical site with a different instructor.

Last week we got to go to a local long term care center (the new politically correct term for nursing home) and give flu shots to the residents. I did fine and no old people were maimed. I did feel like an idiot when my instructor pointed out that I couldn't understand my client not because of her stroke, but because she was speaking Spanish. So I said "Hola, como esta?" and wanted to say more, but realized the only other thing I knew to say was to order a margarita.
