12 Years In the Making

Today, there were two things in the mail: a letter from Jeremy's medical school asking for donations, and his residency graduation invitation. The first letter went straight to the garbage--how about we wait until the hundreds of thousands of dollars in loans we gave to you for tuition stops accruing interest, we actually pay it off, and then have nowhere else to donate to. Then, you can ask us for money, mmmkay? Obvi, I was more excited about the other thing: the residency graduation invitation.

This has been 12 years in the making. TWELVE! Here's the quick version (You can go here for a more detailed version on my other blog.): Four years of undergrad in Utah, four years of medical school and a one year internship in Milwaukee, and a three year residency in St. Louis. (We also threw in a couple bouts with cancer and an adoption to make things more interesting.) We will also complete a one year fellowship back in Utah. (HOORAY!!). So, here we are in year 12--four weeks away from being done. I am so proud of Mr. Hubs, and I am so proud of US.  I pretty much like to take credit for all of his accomplishments; after all, I did let him practice putting IVs in my hands while he was in undergrad. Wife. Of. The. Year. You're welcome, Jeremy (and all of the patients who have received epidurals, spinals, central lines, nerve blocks, and whatever other things he does with needles.) And, I know you don't read this, but just in case I make you...I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!
