This past summer has been quite the whirlwind…recovering from hyperemesis, going to medical school briefly, trying to slow down a tad so I didn’t worsen my preeclampsia, having a baby, still getting to do a few fun things like going swimming a and going to the amusement park with family and so forth. I am now back to work after being on maternity leave for six weeks. This is longer than what I normally get for maternity leave so I’m very thankful for the “extra” time. Good especially since I ended up in the hospital with pneumonia a couple of weeks ago.
The three older children have started school again. D1 is a third grader, D2 is a first grader, and D3 is a kindergartener. Third grade has already proved to be a bit rough with the school calling the very first day of class wanting to have a meeting with the principal. Otherwise, school has gone well for the other kids. The baby is doing well, and weighs about ten pounds now. I’m so glad that he is a really content and easy-going baby.
Though I’m not currently in school, I’m still studying a lot. I have all the anatomy lecture material and have been slowly working through everything so that I will be well set for next summer. The fall semester consists of 10 classes such as biochemistry, genetics, physiology/histology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, pathology, and a couple others. That’s quite a load, so I’ve been reviewing these topics. Immunology will be completely new for me, however. Moreover, I’ve been organizing my notes/images/learning objectives on Google Drive. I feel way more organized about school as well as learning about how which note taking method works best for me with medical school information.
