HO3-- WEEK 19


This week..
-- T has been enjoying driving a 2018 pickup while his car is in the shop. His doesn't need a big or complicated repair, but the dealership has been behind scheduled so they lent him the truck for the weekend! He's loved playing with all the bells & whistles (heated steering wheel, parking assist including seat vibration to alert you, big spacious cab, etc).
-- the garage was framed! Our contractor was nice enough to snap this photo for us as we haven't been able to visit for a while. We haven't heard an estimated completion date but we can finally imagine what it may look like once it's finished. (Actually.. I created a to-scale mock-up online before they broke ground so we have an image of what it may look like - but this makes us hopeful it will be as we expect!)

HO3-- WEEK 18

T's view for the game!
This week..
-- we were lucky enough to have one of T's cousins come visit for the weekend! The spent Saturday in Lincoln with other family and at the Husker Football game. Too bad we lost in overtime - but they said it was a beautiful day to be outdoors!
-- is a new month so a new rotation! This month I am doing inpatient pediatrics. I've spent most of my time in our NICU but I've also seen any patients admitted to the pediatrics floor. We don't have a high volume of kids in the hospital each day (good for the community! but not great for training!) so I spend any downtime seeing kids in clinic too. 
-- we also thoroughly enjoyed daylight savings time. Even better? We met as a region for church today so instead of a 10 o'clock meeting we met at 11 o'clock leaving even more time for a lazy morning. I feel like this needs documented as my facebook and instagram are full of mom's reporting how early their kids woke them up this morning. We also ate some epic sloppy joes. I cannot remember the last time either of us had one - but this recipe with paprika, chili powder, and liquid smoke was right on.

HO3– WEEK 17


Meeting the new babies in the family!

This week..
— was my final week on my dermatology rotation. Dermatology is a great speciality because most people come in with only one question/concern - they either have a rash/skin condition they want healed or to be checked for skin cancer. We spent most of our days removing moles and occasionally treating acne or other conditions. Their office also does a lot of laser treatments and esthetics but I didn’t see much of that. Next rotation - inpatient Pediatrics. 
— T was in florida again for work. They fly him to Tampa/St Petersburg and he spends the days in training and the evenings at Top Golf and eating at fun restaurants on the Bank’s expense. He always comes home from these trainings super fired up and excited about what he learned. He seems to be really enjoying this new career (and it’s perks!).

HO3-- WEEK 16


This week..
-- we spent the weekend in Omaha with family! Two of my three siblings were in town and we tried to maximize our time together. The highlights of the weekend included breakfast at a coffee shop (Culprit), dinner to celebrate T and Dad's birthdays with extended family, skyping/facetiming those that couldn't be there, meeting our cousins' new babies, and just spending time together.
-- (-end) we also celebrated T's birthday by going to the Garth Brooks concert! It was an incredible show - not just because he's a great entertainer and musician - but because the crowd was ELECTRIC. We were at the afternoon show (which you wouldn't expect to be fired up) but he had to repeatedly pause the show because the crowd was so loud. They also went a little off-script an honored one of their backup singers as well as a Grand Island native on their crew. Worth. every. penny. Plus, we rode together with my favorite aunt & uncle - bonus! I love when T's birthday gifts include me!
