Just like yesterday, I had to once again travel to a new city, new hospital in Nässjö. Once again, we were positively surprised at the hospitality of the people at the clinic.
We came at about 9.30am, and was told to go upstairs to the kitchen. As we entered, we were greeted by the kind staff who invited us to the table. Apparently, they had set two plates for us at their Easter table since yesterday, anticipating us. Yup, I don’t think we could’ve felt even more welcome.
During the rest of the day, we were able to see the typical cases you’d see at every skin clinic: eczema, psoriasis, skin cancers etc. The staff there guided us to the rooms every time they knew there was an interesting case for us to see. We were going to end our day with scabies – which I read from our Swedish dermatology book is a typical Scandinavian skin infection – but on examination, it later turned out to be dry skin. I guess that’s both good and bad news. Nevertheless, it was yet another enriching day at dermatology!
When I came home, anticipating all the Easter food I’ll be eating in the next few days at home, I thought it would be a good time to go for a jog. It was pretty sunny too anyway. So I decided to run around the lake right in front of where we live called Rocksjön. I don’t know if I ever have had a more scenic run before because boy was it beautiful.
I have been extremely fortunate to have been placed at such a beautiful place, with such an amazing group of people. I can’t believe my first week at dermatology here in Jönköping is already about to end by tomorrow, time is going so quickly! I’ll make sure to cherish the time I have left next week. But first, here comes a long Easter weekend back home in Stockholm!
