Nobody wears a white coat any more...

...a tribute to becoming a doctor.

I whisper your name
26 December 1978
Let's make this simple and sweet:
I'm 29 years old, female, married, and sporting a still-fairly-new MD, born in northeast Indiana and now transplanted to a residency program somewhere I never imagined myself living. I've a background in eclecticism, with an undergrad degree in biology-chemistry and a double minor in French and computer science.

I've survived my residency in its completeness, and perversely came back for a fourth year. I'm a fourth-year primary care obstetrics fellow now, doing training in C-sections, ultrasound, and maternal-fetal health. I've come a long way since medical school, and I've still got a long way to go. I can't tell you what it's all going to be like - it's been a roller coaster this far - but you're invited along for the ride. It can't be any worse than it was when I was living two hours away from my Angel for most of the time.

As far as hobbies go, I write, read, bury myself in World of Warcraft and roleplay. Almost as faithfully as I go to church on Sundays. Or used to, when I didn't have to round on Sunday mornings.

My husband (heretofore referred to as "Angel", lj-name lakos) works tech support for the IT department of a Major University. I study, don't sleep much, and muddle through. We're finally used to living together again - I've spent close to half of the first four years we were married living somewhere other than where he is. These last two, being able to come home to him has more than made up for all the trauma of being a resident. People still wonder why we spend so much time instant-messaging, though. It's how we've learned to communicate.

Our first daughter was born in late January 2007; she's doing everything a toddler should. She has her own blog which is largely reserved for family to read; please ask me if you're very interested.

Honestly, it's not all that special. I'm just narcissistic enough to want to tell everyone that I can ensnare what's going on in my life.
Plus, I like performing for an audience.

You're welcome to read, to leave your thoughts, and to challenge me. If you friend me, I may or may not friend you back. Please don't take it personally, but when I have limited time I really can't read everything...and I hate leaving people out.
