I Have Joined the 1 in 4: Our Story of Miscarriage

Starting a family is a very personal choice for every person/couple. For DrH and me, it was a no-brainer that we would start a family (God willing) when the “time was right.” But, when is the time right exactly? And with him being in residency, there is never a “right” time, just maybe “better” times.… Continue reading I Have Joined the 1 in 4: Our Story of Miscarriage

Match Day 2014

As expected future Dr. Hubby and I had a very sleepless Thursday night. I woke up to him watching videos on Hulu at 3:30am because he just couldn't sleep.

The most important thing that I learned from future Dr. Hubby's residency interview process is to keep an open… Continue reading Another Second Look & Final Rank List

Yes, I am talking about CANCER. When I was a child my grandfather had stomach cancer, when I was 15… Continue reading The “C” Word


The Countdown

A few months ago my soon to be sister-in-law showed me a countdown app for my iphone. She has hers set counting down to when she and her husband will finish his 5 year orthopedic surgery residency; which at the time they were about a year and a half into. Me being the type-A planner… Continue reading The Countdown


Interview Update

So we are about six interviews into this and I have learned a few things about the residency interview process thus far that I thought I'd share  with you. 1. It is a total crap shoot. When you send out your applications you tend to have a general idea of where you think you will be… Continue reading Interview Update

Residency Applications & Interviews

Well the time has come (and gone) when the future Doctor Hubby had to submit his residency application (ERAS) to programs around the country.
