The last couple weeks were tough. Exams piled on exams. My mom came to visit two weekends ago to take care of me and clean my house and remind me to sleep/eat/shower. She left a few more houseplants, a clean house, a happy kid and a vase full of beautiful flowers.
I’m thankful every day that I decided to go to medical school near my family. I never realized how important it would be to have them at arm’s length while trying to survive this crazy few years. I’m looking forward to seeing my mom, my sister and her brat of a dog this weekend.
