…the first week of my medicine sub-I!
And we only had to order take-out ONCE. I’m considering that a win.
In case you don’t know, a sub-I is basically one of the hardest rotations in med school, where you are essentially supposed to function as an intern (first year resident) even though you are still just a student. The hours are LONG (but not as terrible as I thought…so far it’s been about 12 hours a day), the responsibility is a LOT, and it’s all kinds of eye-opening to think that all of intern year will be like this. Except by then I probably won’t have to run to the lactation room to pump every 3-4 hours (okay…sometimes 5 hours), which, honestly, will make things so much easier.
But, like I said, so far we are surviving.
Remy survived her 4 month doctor’s appointment (complete with three shots and 1 oral vaccine!) without her mommy there.
I survived not being at Remy’s 4 month doctor’s appointment and only getting to see her for about 4 hours a day with only crying a few times.
And the.boy will (hopefully) survive being home with Remy all day tomorrow. Alone. Just the two of them. All day long. Yikes.
Onwards and upwards to this week’s meal plan! There are so many carbs that my heart can hardly take the excitement, but also LOTS OF VEGGIES. Love it. Let’s get cooking!
