Eighteen Weeks

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! :)

I know how your feeling. I only have six weeks left here. I will have my two year certificate but will be left with the decision to go ahead and finish up the other few classes I need to get my associates degree.

Congratulations and good luck!
Debbie

I'm sure you know that gardening is a big stress reducer. So, try to get out in the garden at least once or twice a week during these next 18 weeks and I can guarantee you'll stay at the top of your game.

And after you ace that "little quiz" go have yourself one of those fancy lattes at your local neighborhood "caphe." ;~)
