half an hour between classes

Tonight I have physiotherapy (same thing as physical therapy) until 5:30, then Diagnostic Imaginging from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. I'm already wilted, half conscious, in spite of another thermos full of mate. Physiotherapy lecture would be interesting if the material were more challenging, but it seems to contain a whole lot of fairly general and sometimes debatable statements about physiologic actions of various therapies on the body...long and redundant....the lecturer is good, but the material is...ho hum. Looking forward to digging deeper....once we are past this introductory section of electrotherapies.

My next class, Lab DX we call it, is three hours of watching this athletic young doc and his slides of various pathologies. We're currently looking at everything that can go wrong and be seen on an xray. Last week we looked a lot at congenital anomalies of the spine, and a few traumatic injuries as well. I find it quite entertaining, and a good review of anatomy. I usually feel more awake after his class than I do before it. Such is the life of a student.
