Okay, I know…I know! Enough with the dismal cryptic pictures this week!! But it’s not my fault, I swear….well, no…it is….I keep letting it get to me. For those of you that have been following along, you may have already guessed that this hasn’t been the greatest week. It started off nice, Monday and Tuesday were pretty good even though the plan for Tuesday got thrown a bit, they were nice quiet days….a decent amount of work but….quiet. Wednesday, I had to get my little black book out and start writing…..again.

But yesterday was something different…..I went over to the Mhs lab with GG to start “cross training” so that if need be, I will be able to rotate over there. It’s actually a pretty cool opportunity and a brilliantly marketable skill…..I just have to keep my fingers crossed that our department manager is able to work out a schedule so that I can rotate over there regularly, not just if the regular Mhs tech calls out or needs off for a while….learning something and not doing it on a regular basis is just a waste….as I point out frequently in that place.

So….at least that’s one thing to be happy about for a bit……’s pretty much the new highlight of my week 😉

“Jesus said to the crowds: ‘This is how it is with the Kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come.’

He said, ‘To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable can we use for it? It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.’

With many such parables he spoke the word to them as they were able to understand it. Without parables he did not speak to them, but to his own disciples he explained everything in private.” –Mk 4:26-34

    I LOVE that you are cross-trainning. I think that is the MOST important part of any laboratory employee. If it were up to me, everyone would proficient in every area of the lab, or at least their specialty. Funny short story for you. I am a spec. in Immunohistochemistry yet the hospital I currently work for won’t allow me to cross into the Immuno lab. I have done Immuno for 8 years of my career. One fine afternoon the other week, the Dr that runs the Immuno lab was left without his tech to fend for himself and do all his stainning and prep himself….needless to say he was a bit confused. Without being told to I went into the Immuno lab, processed, cut, and completed all his Immunos for him….Now I must tell you, without cross-trainning I would never have been able to do it! I love Mohs….We NEEED to get together woman!!!

  2. LOL – Oh, please, I am all for learning EVERYTHING that goes on and was doing so before I made “the mistake” (::cough:: left Jfrson ::cough::). Now it’s like pulling teeth for me to do anything other than cut surgicals so this is a huuuuuuge deal 🙂 You really like immuno? I was this|close to getting in on that at Jf but never pushed it cuz….well, it just didn’t seem as much fun as special stains – lol 😉
