We have been discussing, researching, praying, pondering, comparing, and stressing for months about what kind of doctor Nate should be. It has been an extremely hard decision for us to make, but we've finally arrived at a decision: Family Medicine (so he is going to be a family doctor.) We're both happy and excited about it. I think it will be a really good fit for him. Some of the factors that played a big part in his decision to be a family doctor:
-the predictable schedule
-they are in high demand
-it fits his easygoing, friendly personality
-he wanted to do something that would allow him to work with all the organ systems
-it's less demanding than other specialties
We have another year and a half here in Ohio and then we will be headed to Omaha, St. Louis, San Francisco, or Pensecola...these are the places that the Air Force has residency programs for Family Medicine.
I knew Nate wouldn't want me to post or take a picture of just him so I took this one of him and Jansen together at dinner tonight:My sweet Jansen that seems so easy and almost angelic compared to his little sister these days:
