The first day of medical school was hot and humid and I cried when he left because my baby was the Charlie Sheen of babies and I didn’t want to be alone. When Austin came home that evening, he put his head in his hands and said, “I don’t know if I can do this.” I didn’t know either, but I smiled a crazy eye smile and said, “Of course you can!” because that’s what you do when your spouse takes out a few hundred thousand dollars worth of school loans.
Today is Austin’s last day of medical school. And even though there is still so much hard work to be done, it is always good to pause and celebrate doing something you never thought you’d be able to do. Cheers to surviving colic, toddlers, and a marriage while studying blood vessels and all the other stuff inside our bodies (clearly I wasn’t paying attention).
You did it.
