2. It didn't help that last weekend my mom and sister came up and that Sunday we flew to Chicago for the clinical skills aspect of my Step 2 testing. It was fun and we did some fun touristy things (like eat a Chicago dog in front of the Sears Tower) but I was ready to be home!
3. We got another foster 2 weeks ago, Utah. He's super sweet and an older dog so he's pretty chill. He was obviously someone's pet because he's already microchipped and came to us already knowing how to sit, shake, and lay down. I believe he's being transferred to a CO rescue sometime soon so hopefully he'll have better luck out there to get adopted. We did figure out how he likely became a stray last night though. Steven needed to get something from his car and Utah darted. Steven took off after him and when he didn't catch him at the end of the block I took off in the car. Somehow in the 3 miles he ran Steven got in the car and I was chasing him on foot, literally. In the rush to get out the door I didn't even grab shoes. I think people thought I was on meth running down the street barefoot... in a dress...yelling Utah, which by the way there is no way to yell without sounding like an extra in Coal Miner's Daughter.

4. Remember Fergus? He was our very first foster and one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. He loved to snuggle and gives kisses and still has a hold on my heart. We had to give him back to the shelter when we got Spencer but we visited him regularly to walk him and love on him. He was adopted to a lady and her daughter at one point but was returned for somewhat silly reasons (which only makes it harder to get adopted a second time). Well guess what friends, after 8 months of shelter life and many times as dog of the day he finally found his forever home! I was ecstatic! Look how happy he is!
5. After that whirlwind, I got back home last Tuesday around 11:30pm and started school again Wednesday morning. I'm doing a Derm rotation which is really nice because I'm learning a lot about skin diseases and how to differentiate them. I've only been on the service for a week but already my descriptions has gone from "It's a red rash." to something you may actually hear a real doctor say with words like macule, reticular pattern, and horn cyst. The best part though? No tests at the end of the rotation so everything I'm learning is just for my own edification and it's quite honestly the best way to learn anything.
6. If you all wouldn't mind sending some prayers my way today I'd be quite appreciative. I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon to discuss what our plan will be for my wonky cycles. I'm hoping it's a quick fix but from what I know about Creighton therapy most things are kind of labor intensive (shots, surgery, big diet changes, etc). Who's the patron saint of lazy? I need to hit him up.
