All anybody wants is a little affirmation. -- my dad
I can live for two months on a good compliment. -- Mark Twain
Work is not featured heavily on the blog, but yesterday the patient's family told me 'I did a great job explaining everything' and my chief, who dropped in to observe for a time, said he was 'very impressed [with my rapport and procedural comfort level]' and 'why did I go into pathology? You are so good with patients.'
Both just so nice to hear in a job that is always intellectually fulfilling but only rarely emotionally so.
