OB-GYN, Emergency Medicine, a Birthday Bash, and Pediatric Milestones...

Hey Ya'll!

Many apologies for being MIA...again - but the day-to-day hustle of life is sucking me dry. Oh well, after this month I will be living it up for the remainder of the year.

In other news...two weeks ago, I finished up my OBGYN Sub-I. I spent the first two weeks on benign gynecological surgery - i.e. hysterectomies, D&Cs, ablations, etc. The second half of the month was spent on the labor and delivery floor. The hours on L&D were the longest I have ever worked. Depending on how many patients I had to round on, I would get to the hospital between 5 or 6AM and the day would end around 6:30PM. During the month, I also took some overnight call which means that after working the day-shift (either on gyn or L&D), I would stay at the hospital until the next team came at 8 in the morning. It was exhausting but at the same time IT. WAS. SO. MUCH. FUN!!!! It was a sobering reminder that intern year will challenge and stretch me in many ways, but it is also so great because I am going to love what I am doing and I know the hubby and I [and God] are well-equipped to get our family through it intact ;-)

Now I am on week two of Emergency Medicine - my final required clerkship of fourth year :happy dance:. I was assigned to a smaller community IU hospital, and I am the only medical student working there, so I get first dibbs on all the interesting patients which is cool. So far, I have been working quite a few night shifts - ex: 5PM-2AM, 10PM-6AM. I thought it would be a great setup for living my double-mom life during the day, but it is kind of draining.  After keeping baby girl home with me during the day, instead of taking her to daycare, I end up coming home  feeling like the walking dead.

Other Johnson fam news:

Natey's superhero-themed birthday bash was a hit!
We were so excited his cousins could make it!

Our little Spiderman was so hype when he put on his costume i.e. hitting poses like above 
And over the past few weeks, this has happened:

I have a five year old and a crawling baby... Time, please slow down!

Hope you all are having a great week!
