Fluke

This has to be a fluke. I took a free online IQ test for fun (yes, yes, I know it’s weird to think that tests are fun), and while I’m know I’m smart, I’m not this bright.

Taking a Minute

After a busy twelve hour shift, while collecting my things, I saw the wife of one of my patients sitting by herself in a small waiting room. Her husband had had a long surgery. I’m sure the day and the wait hadn’t been easy on the lady.

I took a minute and asked her how she was. We chatted for a moment, and then I told her, “I just wanted to tell you that I think you’re a very handsome woman.” That morning, as I’d been helping her husband, I’d noticed her. She’s not exactly pretty. She’s not classically beautiful, but she’s hardly some unattractive hag. She’s solidly full of life. Handsome suits her.

Her whole expression brightened. I kinda think I made her day, and I know she helped make mine. She definitely took my words as a compliment, and she told me that she hardly ever hears compliments about her appearance. The lady then thanked me several times. I didn’t really do anything. I just told her the kind truth, and it made me happy to be able to share it with her.

New post up on the family blog with a picture of my new nephew!

He’s not a bad looking fellow at all. 🙂

Waiting, Waiting

A little before 7am, Carey tried to wake me up. I was very confused about why she was in my room, making noises at me. It didn’t make any sense, especially not since I didn’t get to sleep until 4am. She wasn’t terribly coherent, either, which didn’t help my sleepy befuddlement a bit. Carey had been awakened by Mom knocking at the door to let us know that Rach was thinking about having that baby boy, and could we please take Kimberly to church for her youth group beach trip?

I sat up and tried to think. It didn’t go so well, but somehow still we ended up with Kimberly and safely delivered her to the church, and Mom got out the door to go meet Rach and Ben at the hospital. We’re all still waiting, one of us more actively than most, for that baby boy to show. It’s pretty exciting!

P.S. Kimberly has decided. His name is going to be David.
