Justin is starting pediatrics inpatient rotation on Wednesday, after he takes a final in primary care tomorrow for which he has studied... maybe 20 minutes.
He'll hopefully do all of peds in three weeks, still be able to be in the weddings, have his mom's wake and also take the pediatrics national shelf exam and Step 2 of the Boards--Part 1.
Now, he wants to go get a drink and then go to sleep and wake up at 2 a.m. to study for the final, which is at 1 p.m.
He's been recommended for honors for primary care--he's done a great job in the small group discussions and working with a doctor in Rancho Bernardo, but once again our real lives will get in the way of the test and unless he really does have a Superman cape...
Meanwhile, poor Oaks is sucked into our old vacuum of mom-is-dying heartache, and I stayed in bed all day.
I guess this is just what people do--we muddle through until we're, well, through.
