Just a short post, to share our good news: Our youngest daughter graduated from high school last year, and has been trying to get admitted to medical school, even though 85% of the applicants are turned away. Although she’s gotten discouraged a few times (as have we), she finally found out yesterday that she’s been accepted!
The best thing is that she will be attending the second most prestigious medical school in the country, right here in town. So she can continue to live at home with us, which will save us both money and gray hair (I remember the 23 hour per day partying from my college days).
The Missus and I have both lost sleep over this hiatus in her education. I remember how hard it is to get back into the swing of things, after being away from school for a while. Not that I was exactly what you might call honor roll material. I barely scraped by in some classes, and to this day, I get nauseous even hearing the word, calculus.
And now, in our “twilight years”, we’ll have free medical care! Beat THAT, President Obama!
And now it’s time for me to get back to celebrating. Cheers!
