He doesn't like the way his nosed is smashed on this photo. But that was the part I loved the most. I think in my head I hear Louie Armstrong singing "A Kiss to Build a Dream On" when I look at this image. We get to be better friends with time, trials and tribulations. This picture shows that. I love my life with this man and hope we get to grow old together.
Honestly? I write this blog to share the human aspects of medicine + teaching + work/life balance with others and myself -- and to honor the public hospital and her patients--but never at the expense of patient privacy or dignity.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
