4 long years

Friday, May 15, 2009

Tomorrow afternoon, I will be married to a doctor.

That is, tomorrow, my husband will be "hooded", will walk across the stand and will hence forth be Slappy, M.D.

Be impressed.

No seriously, be impressed.

I'm calling all visitors, anonymous or frequent commenters, I need you all to give the man a round of applause (and by round of applause I mean nice comment). These have been some of the most challenging years of both of our lives and this graduation is HUGE moment. Tomorrow, Slappy gets to see one of his dreams come to life, tomorrow his hard work is finally celebrated.

My very own doctor. The irony is never ending.

Congratulations honey. I love you and am SO proud of you.

Slappy -- well done! You made it! Congratulations and many well wishes for a successful practice.

And Katie, congrats to you, too. Professional school is a family affair, I've found -- it takes the entire family being committed to the goal. It's great that you guys made it through in one piece.

We're all proud of you, Dr. Slappy. Not only do you have the gift of healing and helping others...not only do you have the perseverance and fortitude to conquer medical school and a new marriage and living so far from home...not only do you have a loving heart and a snappy wit (Snappy Slappy, M.D.)...

but you have the brilliance to recognize the gift you have in Katie and love her.

Well done, Doc.

Congrats, Slappy!! Been a long 4 years, I can imagine (I'm about to undertake med school next year). You've worked insanely hard, and should be VERY proud of your accomplishments!

Congrats again, Doctor!

Congratulations to Dr. Slappy...

After four long years, has he solved the mystery of connecting bottoms with a straw and burping?

That seriously made me laugh!

Congratulations Slappy!

On a different note, Katie, you might find this article interesting: http://www.aolhealth.com/condition-center/chronic-pain/body-broken. It's about a woman who broke her neck 22 years ago, and now has nerve pain that sounds similar to yours, with some of the same "domino" problems.

Slappy - congrats!! My daughter just graduated Friday from the University of Iowa medical school so I know first hand what an amazing thing it is that you have just accomplished. Best wishes as you venture into the next phase of your career.
