End of OB/GYN

So I haven't updated in a while. The weekend before last we went to Marble Falls for a friend's wedding. It was beautiful out there! Lance and I went to Fredricksburg for the day and enjoyed the town. We also went to the famous Luckenbach, TX. It was so neat. It is seriously a small loop with a post office and a dance hall. That is it. Oh, and you buy beer at the post office! It is so neat. I will try and upload some pictures. The wedding was beautiful on the lake there, and we wish Aimee and Trey many wonderful years together.
On a totally different note, I delivered 2 babies last night!!! It was an awesome experience and I am so glad I was able to do that. They were delivered both within the first hour I was there, and then I studied the rest of the night waiting on more babies, but no more came. Lance knew I was going to have a hard time with the night shift, so I woke up to leave and he had a dozen roses, cinamon rolls, and a coke waiting for me. I actually was pretty awake all night. Maybe it was the adrenaline rush!

bath tub=water

Now that it is more than halfway through the week, I thought I should write something. I decided to stay home from the game this weekend to work on my research paper. Hopefully I will get most or all of it done and not have to worry about it for the rest of this rotation.

Maggie has been funny lately. She would go over to the bath tub and start crying. Lance figured out that she wanted her water bowl filled, even though her water bowl isn't anywhere near the tub. Then yesterday she sat by the tub and cried so I checked her water bowl and sure enough she was out of water. She normally sits by her water bowl when she wants more water. oh well, I guess she is smart because she knows water comes out of the tub faucet.

I am on my lunch break right now. I have felt lots of babies in utero today. It is fun for the most part and exciting for the patient when I find the fetal heart rate and they get to listen to their baby. 98% of patients here speak spanish so I have been picking up more and more phrases.

Until next update,
