Already? I can hardly believe we've completed Intern year!  

One year down, (at least) six more to go!  

Just like last year, this July 1st, I again woke up hours before the sunrise on Mr. D's "first day" to make sure I could capture a photo.  And similar to last year he was telling me to "hurry-up," as I pressed his patience, repeatedly asking for "just one more." He tends to blink, and it takes several shots to get a good one in.  
I was sure to remind him that "You'll thank me one day, when you have seven of these photos to look back on as you graduate."  
"I know, I know," he muttered as he rushed off to his first morning of rounds as a PGY-2.  

Here he is, day 1 of 365 of PGY-2. 

For a comparison you can see day 1 of PGY-1, here.  

Note this year he is in scrubs as he was working the floor his first day.  This is because they alternate between working in clinic seeing patients (dressed up and wearing their white coats) and working on their department floor in the hospital (wearing scrubs).  

Also note that we finally have pictures on the wall, and we painted our trim white (it was taken in the exact same place of our house).  Maybe next year we'll actually have the walls painted?   


  1. Congratulations on YEAR TWO! I can't believe we've gotten there either (although I think ours is coming to an end...) I'm so happy that guys love where you're at... and I hope that year two isn't as bad as you guys are anticipating!

  2. I love that you get pictures on the first day and you're right, I think he will appreciate them one day :)

  3. Yay for PGY2! I hope this year goes well for you both.


Thanks for your comments, I love to hear your thoughts! Have a blessed day!
