Thai Infusion

by Meg on February 7, 2012

Today was my first day of Clinical 2- which means I completed Clinical 1 last week! Woo hoo!

Early this morning, I missed the bus which meant I got a little extra cardio in bright and early and decided to walk home from the hospital too. I got about 60 minutes in and some fresh air!
