A friendly reminder
Today is my last day of vacation, and while walking through the park today I ran into a friend who is a new MS3. We chatted for a few minutes and I asked her how her step 1 had gone, and she told me that she ended up taking it 10 days earlier than she had initially planned. I thought that she must have done this because I know she is super smart and thought she was probably ready ahead of schedule. But that was not the reason. It turns out her dad is on hospice and she just wanted to have the exam done so she could use this time before third year starts to spend time with her family. I just made me wonder what it must be like to be in her shoes right now. You are getting all this great medical training, but you, or the people you are trying to be like, can’t do anything to help the person that is most close to you. It must be tough.
