Chassidish Medical Interview

So last night in the Peditatric ER, a chassidish couple comes in with their 3 year old daughter. She was running in school and had a head on collision with a classmate. She had some symptoms suggestive of a post concussion syndrome, which is difficult to diagnose, especially in kids.... I was trying to ask her some questions to test her memory....

Me: Which "yomtif" just passes

little Girl (LG): shrugs her shoulders shyly

Me: Was it Purim?

LG: looks at me, not understanding

Me: ( to her father) does she speak english?

Tatty: Perfectly

Me: OH! ( back to LG) was it Peee - rim

LG: NO! it was PIE- SACH !!!

It's been a while!

Wow… it’s been a long time since my last post… things have been pretty hectic here with Pesach and all.

Got back from Kuujuaq ok… then went straight into Pesach mode. Work has been pretty busy as I have less then 3 months left to my fellowship.

The big news is that we booked our tickets for our summer trip! We will be coming G-D willing from Jul 4-17th. We will be visiting a few communities ( Neve Daniel, Rosh Tzurim, Maale Adumim, Neve Tzuf) with the intention of finding something to purchase. If we can’t find something to buy, ill be back at the end of the winter to find a rental….

Anyway, pretty excited about the trip and a bit nervous…. I really hope we find our place…
