So much has happened since my last update, where do I even begin??
I FINISHED MEDICAL SCHOOL!!! Yahoooooo!!!!!
The family is coming in to town in 2 weeks for the graduation and I've already hyped up my mom's ukulele campfire songs. Should be good times! It's all very surreal to me though. I started my MD/PhD 8 years ago and it seemed like this day would never come. Now that it's here it's all so... weird! What do I do with myself?
The past few weeks I've been busy finishing up my last elective. I spent the month working with local fire departments, the ground critical care transport team, and MedEvac. Here is a pic from my first day with the flight crew. I think the flight suit is damn sexxy.
And now I'm free to train my little tush off for the next few weeks. And train I will. I plan on hitting the roads to ride every day that the weather allows because Triple T is just around the corner. I'm a bit worried about my knee still. It's finally to where I can run 4 miles without any pain. But 4 miles and 26 miles in a weekend are very different things. I will keep plugging along, every other day and slowly building it up.
In other news, I got my schedule for intern year. Let's just say... me racing this summer or fall will be a bit of a stretch. Here is my schedule:
Surgery wards (80-100 hours per week, lots of call)
Medical ICU (80 hours per week, lots of call)
Medicine wards (80 hours per week, lots of call)
Burn ICU (More hours than I care to think about, every other night call)
Anesthesia (YAY!!!! practically a vacation month)
Medical ICU (Christmas/New Years. Ouch. Big ouch)
Neurosurgery (Heinous. Get to wear the intern pager belt of justice every 4th night or so)
So the good news is I'll get the hell months out of the way early. Bad news is that it is summer. Triathlon season. If I make it to the start line of Boulder 5430 awake, it will be quite the interesting day!
One final note for the day-
Go check out the new Timex website. They have all of our new pics up and profiles. The age group woman page is here. They've worked a ton on the new site and I think it looks pretty awesome!
