Dr. Bohlen's Blog: June 14-15th, 2010 - "The Hospital - Part 1"
After an eventful weekend we have come to a grinding halt. Clinic has been Ok but no new surgeries this week. Quiet is good but makes the days long. The weather has come to a new high of 133 degrees I was told officially on June 15. I pretty much get to the hospital right away in the am and really don't leave until at least mid afternoon. I don't go to the dining hall b/c it is the worst at that time of the day and trying to keep the calories down b/c it feels like my activity is down even I still workout about everyday. It is as much to do with the heat though. Yesterday it felt like your whole skin was tingly when you went outside to go to the bathroom. That was a new sensation. That is the only reason why I left during the day. They tried frying an egg on the hood of the car but it just dried up to fast. We will continue with that experiment as we progress. The generators are hanging in there as well as the air conditioner in the room. The area is coming to a realization that nothing has been changed for a couple of years though. The window units in each one those CHU's are steadily failing one by one. They are obviously wearing out. We will see if someone has the foresight to replace them before we all end up sleeping in the hospital.
