Wrapping Up

Today is B’s last official of med school. Sorry, excuse me so I let that sink in for myself for a quick minute. Today is the last day of B’s Emergency Medicine rotation and he’s taking his SHELF exam just about as I write. I’ll try to save the sentimentality for another time, but I […]


B matched into a urology residency program yesterday!!! He hates it when I get “braggy” but one-third of all urology residency applicants don’t match, so matching is an accomplishment in itself. Let alone that he matched into our first choice!! I’m so so proud of all of B’s hard work and excited for the next […]

We celebrated the return of the […]

Dr. Dog

However, one of B’s Attendings came up to him on the first day, shook his hand and said “You have […]

Since We’ve Been Gone Pt. 2 – The Trip

There is a reason for the holiday travel stigma. Two canceled flights equated an unexpected night spent in Newark and an unexpected night spent in Chicago. It also added hundreds of miles to my Mom’s car, late nights and dangerous driving conditions. But we got over it. The resort was gorgeous.   We saw some […]
