No more call!

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.
