28 Weeks!

Wow the time has flown! Can I already be in my 3rd trimester?
This week I have to go for the dreaded 1-hour glucose tolerance test.


I am also getting closer to the end of school. My last 6 week rotation started this week!
Here we come graduation! I can't believe I've been in PA school for...exactly 2years 1 month 2 weeks and 3 days! I am amazed at the things I have learned and experienced in all that time.

I've been on 9 rotations, currently on my 10th. I have watched amazing doctors save lives and had the privilege to learn from them. I have watched and participated in surgeries from C-sections to heart catheterization while someone was having a heart attack.

Probably some of the most amazing doctors are the ones that go to work everyday trying to make the difference between life style changes and serious health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke. Things that seem so easy like starting diet, exercise,and maybe starting new medications. How frustrating it is to watch the patients come back who didn't take the doctors advice and end up with severe life altering health problems.

One of the most important things is that I have a wonderful husband..who I think can do almost anything. He has slowly taken over all the chores. He does most of the shopping, laundry, he cleans the house, has almost completely taken over cooking, the bills (sorta), and all the other tasks that come up.
With all these new responsibilities, he still works various jobs (PMT, Life Legacy), is almost done with his Masters in Engineering, and is about to start his PhD in Engineering. He has been able to snag an amazing job (with benefits), that couldn't have come at a better time. It has come just as we are preparing to have our first baby!

We are so blessed. We couldn't have asked for more perfect timing if we had planned it ourselves. I graduate August 27th, 4 weeks later I take the boards (September 23), and 4 weeks later our baby girl is due. Definitely the work of the Lord. I am so thankful for a loving heavenly father who has blessed us in so many ways.

Looking good:) And I couldn't agree more on the timing of everything. It's all worked out very well and it has been easy to see the Lord's hand in both of our lives. I'm excited to meet your little girl!

Thanks so much for the update - those are all the things I forget and ask you over and over. Just goes to show - life moves so quickly. Seems like just yesterday we met you and you joined our family. So glad you did. You are both AMAZING!!!

I hope you passed the glucose test. I actually failed mine and had to do the 3 hr. Yuck! Thankfully I passed, barely, that one.
