My personal pep-squad

I recived a random gchat message from a random friend today:

"Are you ready to be my vaginacologist yet or WHAT?"

A simple, and lovely, reminder that there are people out there pulling for me to become a doctor.  I may decide not to be a ob/gyn, but finding out this week that I passed step 1, I am now much more confident that I will get through medical school with my degree [and hopefully my head still screwed on].  Thanks ya'll for supporting me through the annoyance of having to retake it. 

Now, if only I can get through the next 7 weeks of my pediatric clerkship without getting sick again...  I LOVE peds but I'm not such a fan of all the bugs the cute kids carry around.

Congratulations on passing Step 1! So proud of you for persevering and succeeding. Now, on to more fun things-- like more pediatrics, and a visit to Boston in October, right?

Congratulations! I hope you have some time in the midst of clerkship to celebrate. As for avoiding the bugs, my personal strategy is as much hand sanitizer as possible. Every time I saw a dispenser on peds, I sanitized.

Conga-rats on passing the step 1 (although don't let your cat eat them all :-p ).

Zinc & elderberry cough drops are part of how I fend of the germs from all my students. I hope you feel better soon!

Yay! Passed the step 1! Go you! I knew you could do it!
