Whew! I can't imagine a better Thanksgiving gift. I truly give thanks. Step 1 is now in my rearview mirror, and I'm onward to MS III and rotations. The work isn't done, but I know that I've gone over a huge hump when I didn't always feel like I would, or could. I probably won't land an orthopaedic residency with the score, but it's good enough for me.
The last year has been grueling, emotional, and filled with highs and lows. I have been supremely humbled by the experience, and so, so thankful to many family and friends who encouraged, screamed, cajoled, and supported me thru this phase. Thanks everyone who mattered. You know who you are.
Onward to clinical rotations and Step 2!
