Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Touching base

Hello, my peeps, sorry I have been MIA for a bit. Things have been abit of a whirlwind lately and I just have not had enough time to blog, very sad I know.

On Thursday, I headed out of town, a patient of mine was having surgery in our neighbouring city, and I went along to assist and learn a bit. The surgery took us about 3 and a half hours, so we ended up spending the night, with the genius surgeon and his family. DB is a very skilled surgeon, and he’s going to become  very important person in my future. (watch this space) After a wonderful evening, Charlie and I hit the sack, because, at 4h00 we were up, ready to travel back, so I would be in time to see my patients.  On friday, I had 34 bookings, tro be seen in 5 hours! It was super busy! I really was quite stressed, and I was tired (after 3 hours on the road) so my day wasn’t great. I finished in theatre with a minor case, after waiting an hour for an anaesthetist. Friday night, Charlie and I had a quiet one at home, with a fabulous sundried tomato pesto, bacon and chourizo pasta. Early night for us.

Saturday held lots of chores, a good afternoon nap and my associates wedding. What a special day, very windy, but special. The ceremony was on the local (very windswept beach) with the reception at a little cafe on the beach – very special. It was a second wedding for both of them, and the bride looked lovely in lavender. It was really special to see their families all there, to celebrate this long awaited union. Congrats D&L, many blessings to you both!

And today, I have wished Charlie farewell, as he heads off to do a training course in Mossel Bay. He’s there until wednesday, and the tragedy is that I’ll probably pass him on the road on wednesday, as I head off to a drug advisory meeting in our neighbouring city. So another busy week ahead for me!
