Licensed to ill

On Saturday a cardboard envelope was wedged into my mailbox. The efforts of the past 5 and 1/2 years was contained on half a sheet of 8" x 11" paper. You guessed it... my very own medical license! Funny thing is, it says that I am licensed to practice medicine AND SURGERY in this state. I suppose if you count all of the little procedures I do as surgery, but it doesn't exactly list any restrictions. My attending tonight told me that she would gladly let me take out her appendix... except that some actually qualified surgeon did it last year. Ah well, incisions and drainages it is, then.

You can perform medicine and surgery in what state? Drunken? Psychotic? I'm scared!

Haha... I'm hoping they'll be happy with a chronic state of confusion.
