90+% Cumulative average

Semester is over and...

Although I can't find out my cumulative GPA yet, it looks to be 90+%. My best yet.

That is all.

Hey Jenny... check this out!

Email to you! Every time I post! Now you don't have to check back... it will tell you when you should!

My wife...

I have said this many times and I will say it again...

Jenny, you are incredible. It impresses me that you work so hard at everything that you do. 110% or nothing. I love it.

I really appreciate the fact that I know that you are working as hard (or even harder depending on the status of the kids...) as I am during the day.

Dinner is almost always ready exactly the minute that I walk into the door.

I am also proud of you getting out and involved in things in the 'Ville. You are a special woman that can do a lot of good for a lot of people.

I'm lucky to be the principal (and eternal) benefactor of almost everything that you do.


This summer the school is sending us out to the whole state on preceptorships. Basically, we get to work with local docs (probably just getting patient histories and performing some physical exams).
I am going to St Louis for 2 weeks to work in an E.R. I am excited. It will be fun to see practical medical applications of the didactics that we are learning at school as well as see things that I haven't seen before.

I am hoping to get in and see a few surgeries and maybe volunteer in a local hispanic clinic. We shall see.

I will try to post a couple of fun/more interesting cases that I see.

The only downer is the 2 weeks without Jenny and the Kids. The last time that we spent 2 weeks apart was tough for all of us.

After that, it is off to PA!



Just finished the complete DOctor practical and the anatomy exam. Feels good. Only an Anatomy lab final and a physiology final to go!

Don't worry woman! You will have a full-time spouse (sometimes another kiddo) again soon!

It has been a while...

Not that I have that much to say... but:

April 28- Anatomy Midterm Exam
April 30- Immunology Midterm Exam
May 2- Anatomy Lab ID Quiz
May 5- Physiology Exam
May 7- OTM Practical and Anatomy Lab ID Quiz
May 9- OTM Final
May 12- Med Micro Exam
May 13- Anatomy ID Quiz
May 14- Physiology Exam
May 16- Anatomy Exam
May 19- Med Micro Final
May 20- Immunology Final and Medical Spanish Final
May 21- Anatomy Written Final and Complete DOctor Final
May 22- Anatomy Lab Final Exam
May 23- Physiology Final

That adds up to 15 exams in 4 weeks. (Not counting quizzes and having class from 8-5 on most days on top of the tests.)
Grief. I am exhausted but see the light with only 3 days of testing left.

The latest and greatest...

Sometimes I am really glad that I live in the USA. Our sanitation is excellent, quality of life is good, and our little friends Opisthorchis sinensis and Enterobius vermicularis are kept at bay.

I think these clips (the latin names are hyperlinks to NEJM) are pretty sweet.
