One down, forever to go.

First day of the hospital rotations for Small Group Delta. I pressed them to send me a "selfie" photo to capture this day. "You'll be glad you did," I said. And I meant that.

Time flies. Especially when you are watching from the seat I'm in. If you don't slow down, you'll miss it. Or maybe forget some parts that you should have savored.

We met up tonight for a debriefing of day one over tacos, ceviche, salsa and chips. And all of it was good and all of it was warm. Just like a family dinner table. They shared about their winter breaks and recent travels. Jessie, my advisee who is taking a detour to work on a PhD, enlightened us on her new life as a PhD candidate. And you know? That part was really great, too.

I'm going to blink and they'll be graduating. This I know for sure. But I will blink as slowly as I can.

As slowly as I can.

I love this aspect of our curriculum design. And tonight, once again, I was reminded that I love every single one of these people, too. They are a part of my family.

How cool is it to have family ties built into your medical school requirements? I'll answer that.


Happy Tuesday. Again.
