A long time coming

Here's a little story for you, kids.

Once upon a time I was seeing a guy- I'm not really sure if he was also seeing me, but I was seeing him nonetheless-who was working in the ER at a local hospital.  He has since moved to the Cath lab   and, I assume, has continued on his route to a fulfilling life in the medical profession. I really have no clue. He was something of a fan of the blog Signout. I started reading said blog in an effort to, well, impress him. I'm pretty easy to entertain, though, so I actually really enjoyed reading it and was kind of sad when it sort of ended (the blog updates, not the quasi-relationship).

At the same time all that reading to impress was going on, one of my very best friends was making great strides in her own medical studies at UTMB in Galveston, TX. As I am sure you all suspect, Hava is a unique and fabulous little woman with brains and charm and an enviously small waist. While in med school she also trained with the Air Force, got engaged, got married, played a major role at a free clinic and cheered her husband through law school. All that aside, there are a thousand things about the medical field that she found cannot actually be learned in school. I often encouraged her to offer her perspective to the world if only to help other med students not feel so alone.

Now, Hava is well into her residency and has survived her first year of parenthood.  And. AND! She has started a blog! Echoing the title of her first post, it has been a long time coming.  So, without further ado: I present Mommy on call.
