Thanks for all your replies to the last posting. I will continue as I have been doing as it is clear the vast majority of you prefer it.
In answer to the queries set in the many comments I received (including by email); the glossary (TPD Glossary), which you can find on the left hand bar, will explain all the terms I use in this blog. Remember this isn't written just for medically minded people.
TPD is written to include the jargon and some of the technical terms because that's how we speak and the diary wouldn't reflect my job if it wasn't included. The glossary is designed to familiarise you with these terms so that you can 'translate' as you read. Many of you will already have become familiar with most of these terms now, I'm guessing.
Cutting down the postings so that only a few calls are written in would probably ruin the timeline, although I'll be careful about repeating too many 'drunk' jobs where possible but I also think that those REAL jobs that come along will catch you out when you have become used to my routine, just as they do for me and my colleagues. That, I think, gives you the feeling of 'being there'.
Once again, thanks for the feedback.
