This last week has been a wild ride. It started with great anticipation on Wed as we waited to receive an email notifying us if I had matched for a position in ophthalmology. Fortunately, a positive email came on Wed evening. Then came the 12 hours of waiting to find out where I had matched. Again, thank God we will be heading to a great program back at UT Houston. The next day, Friday, my brother came out for a few days of skiing. It was a wonderful time to spend with him and enjoy the snowy slopes here in Utah.
Back in June of 2007, John and his lovely wife, Erin, joined Leslie and me on a 2 week trip to eastern Europe. We initially set out to visit Leslie's uncle in Prague and then thought it would be fun to visit a couple other places as well. The 4 of us had a great time in Berlin, Split & Dubrovnik (both in Croatia) and Prague. It was a wonderful time with wonderful friends. Although John and Erin no longer live in the sweaty metropolis of Houston, we look forward to moving back to be around other such good friends that we made over the last ~4 years.
