Today is momentous as it marks day one of David’s (paid) career in medicine. During this first year he is an ENT intern and will be rotating through various departments each month, with this month featuring the general surgery service. I’m not exactly sure what to expect of the coming years, but I think today gave me a good preview as David’s alarm went off at 3:20 AM!!! We only have one car right now so I had the honor of driving him to the hospital. It was too early to make him a nice breakfast, but I did manage to get my wits about me enough to slide a “You Are Special Today” plate underneath his cereal bowl. Will that earn me the Wife of the Year award? Here you see all of his morning essentials: red plate, bowl of cereal, pager, phone, and scriptures.
(Notice the luxurious packing paper taped to the window behind him. We’ve spared no expense on window treatments!)
I made him pose for the camera looking all professional (and hot) in his scrubs and white coat before we left the house.
Then it was off to the hospital where I insisted on one more pose. Of course, I had to take the picture quickly and then jump back in the car and lock the doors before I got mugged. The LSU hospital isn’t in what you might call a safe part of town.
Here’s the last shot I snapped, unbeknownst to him. I have to confess that I had a pit in my stomach as I drove away knowing that his walking through those hospital doors would mark the beginning of a totally new way of life for us. Fortunately, I have the baby to keep me company.
