Quick update on Brad. He does have osteomyelitis (an infection of the bone). He has had his surgery and is recovering well thus far. I believe he has to be non-weight bearing on his leg for 8 weeks. They inserted a new rod into this leg that is filled with antibiotics, as I understand it from JR. I have no idea what the next step is but we are all elated that he is out of surgery and moving forward with this process. We'll continue to pray for his recovery as I know the road ahead is long.
As of yesterday at 12:30pm, I am OFFICIALLY done with my academic classwork for my graduate degree. Can I get an AMEN!?!?!??! I took my final final yesterday and man does it feel good to never have finals again. I can just feel the tension easing in my shoulders and neck as I sit here typing this. My DPT class had a small pub crawl yesterday after the final (that's right at 1pm we were pub crawling). I did not plan to stay. I simply wanted to grab a beer and have lunch with my classmates since I won't be seeing them until graduation. Buuuut, the joy of being done just couldn't be denied so I didn't head home until close 5pm. :-) It was totally worth it! That evening we had our traditional Ugly Sweater Christmas party with the class and of course we had a great time. It feels SOOOO good to be done with this part. Now I just have 2 clinicals standing in my way of graduation. I get "hooded" on May 15th so let the countdown begin. WOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now it's off to dinner with my lovely husband for a celebratory drink and dinner. YUM! Oh and of course some last minute Christmas shopping as well. Oops! We were pretty unprepared for Christmas this year. It really did seem to sneak up on us.
...til next time
