After the 4th of July holiday, Ben begins rotations. His first 6 week rotation this semester is in Family Medicine with Dr. Chen, who is less than 3 miles from our house in Saginaw. This means we will see Ben as much we would see him if he had a regular 9-5 job, maybe more. However, after that, he has Internal Medicine for 6 weeks, OB/GYN for 8 weeks, and Surgery to finish out the year (not sure how many weeks). That means that from about the beginning of September until Christmas break, we will barely see Ben at all because he will be at a hospital all the time or on call.
I am excited for him because he is finally out of the classroom and getting to apply all that he has learned, but worried about how I will handle the preschool, a 2-year-old and a newborn by myself. I think of myself as a strong, independent person, but we are about to see just how strong I am. Prayer, prayer, lots of prayer, relying on the Lord, the scriptures and friends from church. That'll get me through, I know this.
