This past weekend was my husband’s practical national boards exam – the other half of boards that gives him his DDS this June. He had two days and four procedures to prove himself in. And he had to depend on patients to actually show up and on time. (Believe it or not, this is a HUGE problem at times in the dental school … people don’t realize how important their faithfulness to an appointment is.)
I’ve never seen him so stressed out, nor felt so stressed out myself. It was very nerve wracking. I guess things are when your entire future rests upon the outcome. But I digress.
On Saturday I was his patient for one of his exams (yep, he was saving a small cavity of mine just for this test…so glad I could help *rolling eyes* LOL ). Then he asked me to be his assistant for a deep cleaning exam on Sunday. In preparation for this he told me to get out his old scrubs from his first semester in school and, “See if they fit you.”
And they did. 🙂 I was so pleased, because I know they would not have fit me back when he bought them. It was a nice non-scale victory for our very stressful weekend.
As I write I’m remembering another NSV while at the clinic. A female student in his class told me how good I looked and he told me later that she kept gushing about how awesome I looked. *giggle* Of course, that makes me smile ! 🙂
