What I Love About My Job

I never learn it all.

Just when it starts to bore me, I'll get some new branch of medicine or new procedure or new treatment and it's interesting once again. By new, I mean new to me, of course.

Today's new thing was the use of gold seeds placed in holes drilled in a patient's spine bones to treat bone cancer. Just fascinating!

I'm curious about the use of gold in medicine ... my grandmother used to go in regularly in the late 1960's - early 1970's for gold shots to help either reduce arthritus inflamation or pain or both.
