So it’s been a couple of weeks since match day and the euphoria is still there. I keep racking my brain trying to figure out what I did to match at my #1 program which just happens to be at a top hospital. As I think back, yes I worked very hard, yes I didn’t go home, yes I was easy to work with, but so were many other students. No matter how I hash it out the conclusion I keep coming to was Gods promise to those who keep his Sabbath as described in Isaiah 58:13-15.

God is truly amazing and it is slowly setting in that I will be an official resident at Hopkins, lol. On match day I just about cried when I saw the letter. I couldn’t believe that after all of those hours away from my pregnant wife and all the disappointments about interview invitations or scores, that God still allowed me to match at an amazing program.

So with that said I have been busy filling out all the forms that they have been sending like the contract, temporary license, long white coat order form(oh yeah), background check, etc. This is really happening and I am excited to see what God has in store for me at my new job.

BTW I just found out that I am the first med student from LLU to match at Hopkins for ortho. I could let that go to my head but I know that God had 99% of the responsibility for this so instead I will continue to give him the glory.

My daughter is doing great….growing quite big. Below you can see me already grooming her into a future orthopod lol:
