Caught Smiling

This is going to be a short post with just a couple of pictures and a video. School has kept me very busy, and Anna has kept Janna very sleep deprived. All is well here, aside from the crappy weather.
Ambrey wanted everyone to see how beautiful her cookies were, so here you go.
Alyssa has been a big help with Anna, she loves to feed her.

Clinicals Have Finally Started

I have finally started my clinical rotation. This is a picture of the Buffalo VA Medical Center, which is where I am currently observing anesthesia. It is located just across the street from UB's south campus. Friday (February 1st) was my first day of observation, and I must say it was nice to be back in the clinical setting. I have spent the last six months doing little more than book work, so this was a very nice change. I will not be starting my full rotation until May, but this will be fun because I will get the opportunity to practice, without having to be evaluated, or take responsibility for the patients well-being.

As a side note, I played basketball on Tuesday for the first time since April of last year. Actually I just shot around while other people played. Still, it was fun to do something physical. The good news is that I have not noticed any significant increase in pain with my knee.

Here are some pictures that I took of Anna today.
Janna is still doing great. She has recovered really well from surgery. We have also been very fortunate to not have Anna sick (at least not yet). Alyssa is doing well with schoool, and Ambrey seems to enjoy being home with Janna and Anna. Also, we are now pretty sure that Anna's hair is going to be red. Not only do we have all girls, but I have three red heads (Janna, Ambrey, and Anna). Thank goodness for Alyssa, otherwise I would really be in for it.
