Nebula Pigglewiggle here. I’m not sure what the others have been telling you, but I did not mean to set the house on fire. My cooking skill should have been high enough for eggs and toast.
Yesterday was orientation and so I got shown around the clinic. I learned where the analysis units are, the x-ray machines, and the surgery room (although it’ll be a long time before I get to use them). I also learned the various policies and procedures for intake, and medical analysis so I was excited to finally get to work today.
Perhaps too excited? I was mentally running though everything I’d learned yesterday, imaging myself in the examination room, when I set fire to the stove making breakfast.
So instead of delicious eggs and toast we all ate cereal and yogurt. It kind of threw me off for the whole day and I only started to catch my stride in the afternoon.
During the entire morning, I only saw two patients, Nancy and Geoffrey Landgrab. Nancy was just in for a routine llama vaccine before she goes on her annual Llama Cruise, but Geoffrey had a weird spiral rash all over than I’d never seen before. Dr. Emery had to come in and diagnose him.
Around noon I was called to run an emergency sample through the machine which took me away from the patients while I ran the sample and sent the results back to the hospital. I think the solicitude helped settle me and I got through the afternoon with only a few minor mishaps.
Dr. Emery was very understanding although my performance today was only so-so. Hopefully I can do better tomorrow. Now I just want a hot bath, warm food, and maybe watch some television. At least I can make grilled cheese without setting the house on fire.
