Sunday night was Jon's last night of overnight medicine call for the rest of his career. He will have overnight call in psychiatry over the course of the next 3 years... but the worst is definitely behind us.
My friend Kendra called me to relay a conversation she had with her 3-year old daughter Lexi. She's going to have another baby in about a month and she was trying to explain what a hospital was to Lexi. The conversation went something like this:
Kendra: so when mommy has the new baby, I'm going to have to go to the hospital.
Lexi: what's a hospital?
Kendra: it's a place where doctor's work to help people.
Lexi: oh, you mean like where Jon lives?
such insight from such a young girl.
(go here for more Lexi-isms.)
thanks for the honesty, Lex!
Hopefully Jon can live at home now for a little while.
