Bridal shower/farewell at Elkhart General Heart Center put on by Sue, my mentor and partner the last 4 years, and an expert at throwing parties.

Isn’t this some of the cutest food art you’ve ever seen? Leave it to Susan.

Yes, handmade. By our receptionist Jackie… in the picture below in brown on the left. What a meaningful gift!

10 Days til the wedding!

2 days until I take down my picture from the critical care board.

“You really helped me feel better,” a patient told me tonight. And I feel a twinge of loss to part with a field I know a lot about and go to a field I know little about. And I know why people often stay in a field too long, even though they know they should change, because change seems too hard and a comfort zone seems preferable to a better zone.

Mixed emotions… but had a good chat with my stepmom Jeanie, who is always full of cheer and good ideas.

I have so many wonderful people in my life! I don’t think I could get married without them!
