The test is over.... this one at least

Dr. O has taken the USMLE step 2. The long hours of studying and preparing for the test are over. Now the wait begins. We will be praying that he not only passed it but with flying colors. He sounds better than he has in weeks and for that I am glad. I am proud of him regardless of the outcome. He did his best and to me that is what matters.

I do hope he passes I will admit just because it would make things easier for the future as well as help restore Dr. O's confidence level that has always been a part of him. Medical school is definitely good for taking a super smart person and making them equal to the rest of the world. I for one could not do it, not all the studying, and the hard work, the intense dedication one must have to succeed in this field, but it is not me that has to do all this. I do pray for him often though.

I am just trying to remember each and every day that God's plan even if it is not in sync with our plan for the future will always be bigger and grander than anything we could plan for.

Of it all though, I believe in my man. No matter what happens I will be that soft place to land. I will have a peaceful home for him to come to. I will be a strong supporter of his no matter if he needs it or not.

and now we wait. We wait up to 6 weeks to find out the results of the USMLE. Please those that read  this blog if you pray, please take a moment every time you think of us to pray. He still has to take the COMLEX but we don't have a scheduled date yet due to away rotations and an uncertain schedule. Once he takes the COMLEX we will wait another 6 weeks for the results of that test.

Jeremiah 29:11  - For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.- (NIV) []

So much has been going on here. I have not really posted a lot. Dr. O is studying very hard for Step 2 USMLE. He is on an away rotation in Vegas as well. There is a lot going on for the poor guy and a lot riding on doing well on this test.

We are sick. The girls are finally on the mend I think. However I cannot say the same for me. I have a lovely sore throat, a screwed up voice, a runny nose, sneezing, and general not felling well stuff. I can only say ugh. I am glad my babies are on the mend though. I do wish I was too.

In other news , we are up north visiting my family. It is nice. I really do enjoy my family. They are great people. Nothing like being surrounded by your family. I miss my honey to be sure but it nice to be here.

Money is tight again. Umm I guess the question is really when is it NOT tight. God always provides and he will this time same as all the other times.

For those that read my blog and pray, please pray for a great passing number on Dr. O's test and for me to get well.

Off to sleep now.
