How is your internship year going? It has been a lot better than I thought it would be. Everyone kept telling me it was the hardest out of all of it and I let that scare me. Don't get me wrong, it has been hard, but nothing we haven't dealt with for the last 5 years. It is a day at a time thing. Enjoy the second half of the intern year!


I don't really think I know what it is like to be married to a doctor yet? Really we have just completed 4 years medical school and 5 years general surgery residency. All we know is the craziness of residency.


I am wondering if Mike is practicing medicine or still in residency or fellowship and in what field. I met my husband in medical residency and we suffered together through his fellowship, practice interviews and finally private practice. I am also curious on your discussions about the medical industry. One thing I am is a comforting ear for my husband's stressful days with patients, hmos, notes and the business side of medicine.

You mean you don't ride around town in your limo shopping all day while the Nanny cares for the kids, the cook fixes a gourmet dinner, and the housekeeper does the laundry??? :)

My very favorite doctor is my OB. He saved my daughters life. Anyhow I ran into his wife one day at Target. She was walking around in sweats with her hair in a ponytail and was just like me. :)

In the end, we're all people. Human.


I just stumbled upon your blog this morning via Enjoy the Journey...and I have to say how much I've enjoyed reading your blog and the "truths" about being a doctor's wife. :-)

My husband and I have been married just shy of 5 years (and just about 4 of those have been spent in medical school--he'll graduate this June). While I'm very excited to complete this stage of his medical education (a lifelong journey), I definitely have my reservations, especially since we have decided for me to be a SAHM once we start residency (we have an 18 month old and one due 4/30).

I've only heard that PGY1 is worse than being in medical school....please tell me it's not that bad. :-)


I was one of the folks that found your blog in that goofy way...and it was because I was wondering if there were any other women out there who were annoyed by the "oh, how nice it must be to date a doctor" comments. :) I look forward to reading your blog. :)
