The Last Day of Medical School
Today is the last day of medical school for Jared. It's hard to believe four years has passed and he's done! It's also been a week since we were given our residency assignment. I haven't shared many details about that day, so I thought I would elaborate!
Jared's parents Cindy and Richard came to visit us for the weekend. They have sacrificed a lot for Jared in this process, so I was so glad they could be there for this happy occasion.
When we arrived at the ceremony, the school presented Jared with his graduation gift: a wooden business card holder engraved with his name and a very important new title...
This is the first time I have seen my husband attached to this title. Very cool and well-deserved.
The Match Day event started at 9:30 in the morning, but we had to wait to open the envelope until 11! The tension in the room was palpable. I have never been so nervous in my life. Each medical student walked across a stage and received their envelope. The envelope which would change everything.
At exactly 11 a.m., everyone tore open their envelope! Once the assignments were given, students were asked to put a pin on a map to let everyone know where they were going. We are one of two students heading out to Florida.
I'll keep you updated as this new chapter continues!
