In eighteen weeks, I'll be finished with school. Eighteen weeks. Just under, actually, because this week is half over. I alternate between being excited about this and being utterly terrified at the prospect. I am very comfortable in the operating room these days, (after 1100 cases, I ought to be!), but there's still a lot of support available in a teaching hospital. I'm sure I'll have available help in another setting, but since I don't really know, it's a source of mild anxiety. Oh, and I think I may have mentioned the little quiz I'm facing when I finish this!
Thank you all for being patient with me as I work through this last stretch. Eighteen weeks - I can do this! :)
