23/11/23 Couple hours of pathology work today
I did end up having a change in plan as my supervisor wanted to get even more 'last call' responses on the questionnaire so I decided to hold off doing any more data analysis as now I'll have to quickly update the numbers anyway. I think I'll close responses within the next week and tbh don't think the discussion will take toooo long, and it is only for a draft submission in mid December anyway. Instead I put on a 2 hour timer on my forest app for pathology and got on with the few tasks I had for the subject, like making 'normal urinary histology' summary tables ahead of the lecture tomorrow, going over the previous 2 years of urinary tables properly and reading the respiratory pathology chapter in my book to have a little recap on what we learnt last fortnight. I then had to go to the doctor which of course overran so I didn't come home til a fair bit later in the evening and then I decided to give up on doing any more work today. It was a successful doctor visit I think though - I did feel I got thoroughly checked, got some more diagnostic tests in the works and a likely endocrinology referral, so hopefully things will move forward a bit this time. Tomorrow I have clinical skills 9-11 then lectures through til 5 but I don't think I will go to all of them. I don't overly find most standard parasitology lectures too useful to listen to which 3 of these are (because slides are detailed enough), and the behaviour lectures are quite self explanatory so I may just go into the urinary histopathology lecture and otherwise spend time doing my own work in the library, but we'll see what I feel like tomorrow.
