General Surgery

Day 1:
Today is the first day of Brett's General Surgery Internship year.
He left the house at 4:30am and will be there at least until 6pm.
This will be his schedule 6 days a week for the next few months.
The good news is for this month he has no night call!
We have kind-of been dreading this year since he started but we are hoping it won't be as bad as we think!
I feel like the next 3 years will probably fly by and we will be taking this same at Brett's graduation.
This was last weekend at the Oral Surgery graduation.
One of the graduates said in his speech "Back in '05 when we started this journey...."
That year we were just finishing our first year of dental school and it seems like SO long ago.
As if we didn't know this residency was long, it is really put into perspective when you look at it that way!
(Doesn't Brett look so nice in his suit??!!
His aunt and uncle gave it to him for med school graduation and he was so excited to get to wear it!)


  1. y'all both look cute! I love that dress! Way to go Brett! I guess there won't be anymore Shreveport visits for the next year?

  2. You guys clean up nice...there's your special engagement dress! I'm glad you are getting some use out of it. My husband #2 sure is lookin sharp! I hope the next few months aren't too bad. It will go by fast..sure seems like it has so far!

  3. Love your blog and I definitely can relate! It is a long journey but will be worth it in the end! Thanks for sharing your story!
