Rehab Phase VIII: doctoring, family injury curse


I'm officially a doctor now! Whoop whoop. I've already been working at the University Hospital of Zurich for a couple of months now and I like it a lot. I'm doing research on a rare lung disease called pulmonary hypertension. My department is awesome, they're sending me to congresses in Paris and Bologna.



I had one day to myself in Paris and spent it cycling around, hiking up the Eiffel Tower, shopping, eating Foie Gras and drinking good wine. 

Of course, I haven't forgotten about my plans to go snowboarding at Christmas, which is still a very ambitious goal. Besides some ups and downs here and then my rehab is going pretty well and I still have enough capacity to work out every two days because my job is not (yet!) very time consuming. 

By the way, my dear sister is injured once again, too (fibula fracture, incl. osteosynthesis, which means screws and stuff). It's a little ironic, since we haven't managed to be not-injured together for about 3 years now. 
For example, I remember Feb 29th 2012, which happened to be my first day of shredding that season (ankle injury at the beginning of the season...) and my sister's last one (ACL and meniscus rupture that day). However, her current injury is not a season-ender, so we are all keeping our fingers crossed for us to have awesome shredding days together in February 15! Keep strong, sista!

I really hope my next post will include a photo of me with white background (as in fresh snow!).
