Awesome website Michelle- your FI did a great job!

 

Side note: I had to read your "how we met" story. Very cool! One of my best friends who is an OB resident went to PCOM. Good luck with your studies!

Don't hold your breath on the RSVP thing...lol I'll cross my fingers for ya though!

I work at Ingham Regional Medical Center in Lansing : Ingham Regional Medical Center . That's where she's a resident. It's definitely a tough program. Our hospital is obviously a teaching hospital, but relatively small-med sized so we only take 3 OB residents a year. It's definitely a tough program. She and her DH are both residents (he's ortho) so the hardest thing for her is that they literally NEVER see eachother. She'll also work like 20 days or nights in a row without a break. The life of an OB resident is HARD! She's really tough and is handling it well, but I won't lie- we've had some talks where she just cries it all out and tells me she can't handle it, yadayada and I just support her until it gets better. I think she's happy at least 75% of the time though.

She was the main reason why I almost quit nursing last summer to pursue med school. She almost had me talked into it. In the end I decided at my stage in life I didn't want to have kids in residency and I didn't want to wait until I was 40 to have kids so I decided against it. But, there's a small piece of me that will always wish I went to med school!

Good luck in your schooling. Never know- maybe you'll rotate through my hospital as a student someday :) I've met lots of PCOM people!
