Soaking up as much family time as possible before my residency starts in 3 short weeks!
My first rotation will be in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), known for being the hardest rotation of residency... complete with long hours and very sick patients.
Ever since my mom was in the ICU for 2 weeks during my first semester of med school, I've wanted to be the doc comforting patients and their families in that place. In 3 weeks, I'll be there, in the exact ICU where I sat by her bedside, jumping at every alarm, afraid, vulnerable, and uncertain.
I can't express how much I'm looking forward to it. So much nervous anticipation... But for now, in this moment, I'll soak up my baby's first trip to the zoo, and cherish these sweet little moments. 💛#residencyiscoming #firstzootrip #littlemoments
