Things have been stable over here...Still working...a lot. LOL
This week is my last week at Wake Med and my last rotation here as an intern. It's so hard to believe that I am almost a second year resident! My second time out at Wake has been so much better than the first. Mainly because I know a lot more than I did in August. I am starting to really feel like I have a good grasp on this OB thing. And in preparation for second year, I got to even do some GYN surgery - which was a huge change of pace from our OB heavy first year. I think my heart is with obstetrics, but I must admit that laparoscopy is pretty cool!
Below is a video of a tubal ligation. You use a camera and instruments in one tiny incision to clamp the fallopian tubes and preventing pregnancy.
We finally managed to get some family photos taken around Valentine's Day. I thought it would be poor form to send out Christmas cards that late, so we will try again next year haha...
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that we also had a couple of "winter storms" in Carolina. One of which, caused me to have to stay in the hospital in between my night shifts...still bitter about that one. Everything shut down for multiple days, but you could still see grass!!

The littles are doing awesome. It hasn't gotten any easier being away from them so much, but we are all taking this crazy life in stride.
Happy Match Day! I cannot believe it's been one year since The Match. Such an amazing day... I hope all you fourth year med studs out there get to go to the program of your dreams! So ready to hand off my pager to the new interns ;-)
