I don't even know where to begin…this is my last blog! I
seriously cannot believe I will be graduating in less than two
weeks! Of course, I am excited to move on from NUHS, but I have to
admit it is quite scary! Not being told where to be, what to do,
and how to do it every day is going to be a very big change… but I
am sure I will adapt!!
I have become very nostalgic lately, hugging my friends more
than usual knowing these last few days may be the last time we are
all in one room together. I have been saying goodbye to my
patients, which is extremely hard! I love my patients and will
think of them often even when I am gone! I poured my last tincture
in the dispensary, performed my last hydrotherapy and wrote my last
paper this week. Every day there is a new reminder of the closing
of my time at NUHS.
As sad as it may be to say goodbye to friends and old routines,
I am very happy to be going to spend time with my sweet little
niece! My sister is always sending me pictures of her… the latest
photo shoot was of my niece dressed up in her various bathing suits
with captions saying, "Come visit me soon Auntie A!" How could I
not want to just drop everything and go squeeze her!!
Hospital Shadowing Experience
This coming week I will be shadowing at a Joliet hospital ER
room. I have never been exposed to emergency room situations and am
very thankful for this opportunity! I know I will see things I
might never see in real practice. Not that I have any plans to
become an ER doctor, but it will be worthwhile to learn a new
aspect of medicine and meet new doctors. It's like Dr. Lou always
says… make friends everywhere you go!
As I move on to hopefully bigger and better things… I ask that
everyone stay in contact! I will certainly be happy to update
everyone on my goings on!
I hope that everyone has a happy and healthy summer!
