August 6th


So it is official in a confirm-when-we-are-closer-to-the-date kind of way...I am 67 days away from picking up Zebastian. Monday, August 6th! It seems sooooo far away! I am certainly jealous of my friends who went to court on the same day as me and get to travel 30 days sooner - but at least I am going to get the opportunity to actually travel and pick him up. I can actually travel because my agency is pulling some strings to get Zebs visa before I get there. I will be able to pick him up on Monday and head out to Almaty that very same day. If I couldn't fit the entire trip into one week, I was going to have to get an escort. Which is a great option for some people - but I really wanted to be there for when he left the orphanage and I really wanted to travel with him. I never though I would say that about a 30+hour trip with an 7 month old ...but it is true. I am going to have to start a countdown on my blog somewhere.
Tomorrow, I start my super cush-y private hospital rotation to finish up my year of surgery. It is hard to believe that I have almost made it through this year of surgery. I will officially have been a doctor for an entire year in 6 days. I remember how completely scared I was my first day of work last year. My first day of being a doctor, on Trauma surgery - writing my first script ever...lets hear it for 2-4mg of Morphine IV q 2hr prn pain! I have had a crazy year!
