Perils of pediatrics

Being a pediatrician is great. I love the kiddos, especially the healthy ones. Squealing and giggling and falling off of things - life is just good for (most) kids.

But then there's the fact that I get exposed to every damn infection every damn kid in Houston gets. Which means, right now, I have the gastro. Also known as gastroenteritis, also known as AGE, also known as a stomach bug.

So I'm stuck on the couch getting up every 5-15 minutes to "evacuate" and feeling sorry for myself.

At least Kids in the Hall in on the telly. Life could definitely be worse.
