On Saturday (Christmas eve) I headed into the cancer centre for half a day to round on the inpatients, then relaxed at home, watched the snow fall, finished Planet Earth II (recommend!), and read more of Wild.
Today (Christmas) was beautifully sunny and snowy. After rounding on the inpatients I got to join the patients, their families, and the staff in the cafeteria for a turkey lunch, which was a really special experience. One of the rad oncs came in with his wife and children to serve sparkling wine and desserts to everyone -- which has apparently been a tradition in their family since 1989! Everyone was so kind and friendly, and it was really nice to take a break out of the day to sit down to share a meal together.
After lunch I saw a couple of consults, finished up some ward stuff, and ate a ton of chocolate. Christmas call is honestly the best kept secret when you're away from your own family/friends (and not to worry, I'm headed home for New Year's).
