Your Doctor's Wife's Vacation Update

Just in case you were wondering...

I got here late. Just today. What can I say...teen girls. Doc H and LB have been enjoying father-son time up until this point. So we are here...three out of six. *sigh*

I envy those who have spouses who can go on vacation and really be on vacation.

Within ten minutes of arriving to our new place, our phone was ringing. It was the hospital. That was a lengthy conversation. Who gave them our number?

Five minutes after he hung up, Doc H's cell phone rang. Bio-tech consulting work.

Right after that, he had to open his lap top to send a work-related email.

...all the while, LB is just waiting to go on a bike ride with his dad.

I shudder when I think about the day surgeons can telecommute to work. Then what? Blood and guts 24/7. That's what.

Or worse, an app. He'll be slicing and dicing an aneurysm through his IPhone. I'll be enjoying the beauty of Barcelona while he's sitting there dragging his pointer finger over the screen for hours.

I really hope that doesn't happen during my lifetime.

...Oh, and the diet my brother told me not too long ago, "I'm so hungry I just might start eating my new leather shoes."


  1. Medicine seems to follow you around. No matter where you go, you can run but you can't hide from medicine.

  2. Absolutely. No getting away from it.
