My McDreamy!

For 2 years Jeff sat in the classroom learning all there is to learn about feet and now he is putting all that great knowledge to use. Over the last 3 months he has been in a clinical rotation working at St. Mary's Hospital in San Francisco where he is actually scrubbing in on surgeries and procedures. In case you can't tell Jeff is the one in blue...and the one in front actually doing the suturing (sewing)! 
I love hearing about all the fun things that Jeff gets to do each day although my stomach still can't handle actually watching procedures. This particular surgery they were working with a girl who had flat feet and they were trying to fix that. (Sorry honey that I don't remember all the technical terms!! :)
Last week I became the patient and went in to have part of my toe nail removed and one part they even had to "burn" with a smelly chemical so I would stop getting in-grown toenails. He refused to do the shot so I wouldn't associate him with pain however he did the whole procedure and he did great. I thought at first I would be so nervous to have him do it but truth be told I have never been more calm in a doctor's office than I was that day. Jeff has worked so hard and spent so many hours preparing for the work he does and I had complete confidence in him that he knew exactly what he was doing. 
Jeff is the one in the back left, they look so serious! I am very proud of him and all the hard work he does each day not only for himself but also for me and the boys. It has been a long road and although there is still much to be done seeing pictures like this makes the light at the end of the tunnel a little brighter!
