Happy Mother's Day
As the wife of a resident, there are times when I have to go long periods where I hardly see my husband. I'm sure you can relate. Being able to take time and reconnect is so important for us. Mother's Day was a nice reminder to my husband to take some time to make me feel special. I know that he tries to do that all year long, but sometimes I need Hallmark to give him a gentile nudge.
On this medical journey we have been on, I have found that while I spend lots of time without the Doc, I know that our time together is special. While he may have to spend hours studying, I know he would like to have a few more hours to relax with me. While he is focusing on his patients care and working hard to help them, I know he would love some time to focus on his family.
I'm sure that your journey has been similar to mine and that you would love some more time with your Resident as well. Just remember that you are loved and all of your sacrifices are appreciated. Happy Mother's Day!
