I did it! I made it to midterms; I made it to my evaluation; bottom line I made it. They stated that I was “the best intern they have had in three years”. Wow! That’s amazing…little ole’ me from Texas. Couldn’t have done it without God.
It’s been a whirlwind; I’ve been homesick and missing my fam like no ones business. But underneath all of that, I have succeeded and that says a lot.
I am doing introduction of Child Life Services on the unit, in the NICU and now in the Emergency Department. I had my first child abuse trauma experience and my first adult consult end of life consult for a child these past two weeks. It’s torn at my heart, but I have to be strong.
Our motto is “to be the best for those that need us”. I need to continue to put my heart into everything and pursue my needed passion.
Keep looking up, the stars are waiting.
