medical tidbits //
  • Hydrosalpinx is a what happens when a fallopian tube becomes blocked and is filled with fluid. It can be caused by infections or adhesions, causing pain and infertility. 
  • Heterotopic pregnancies are when there is both a pregnancy in the uterus (an intrauterine pregnancy), and a uterus elsewhere (an extrauterine pregnancy, usually in the fallopian tubes). 
  • The liver is the only visceral organ that can regenerate - as little as 25% of the original liver can regenerate back to a normal sized liver!

  • I wanted to know what the best parts are of your new life as a resident, since matching is terrifying but should also be really exciting and it would be great to focus on the positive for a sec :)
    • I think my favorite part of being a resident is feeling a real sense of responsibility now, and knowing that I finally am able to do the work I spent years watching other people do. It just gives me a sense of purpose, which I really find gratifying. I also really really like delivering babies!
  • Where did you get the candle holders in your fireplace?
  • I need a few new blouses for work, and you always have the cutest ones! Do you have any suggestions for ones currently available?

  • Had my own first successful surgery for one of my own patients! I was so happy that we were able to help my patient, and to walk out knowing it went well. I always say that the obstetrical side is more my favorite, but I was so darn happy after that case that I don't think I can really decide one way or the other!
  • Spent a lot of time watching the Olympics. I absolutely love them, and can't get enough. I will say, as cliche as it is, the figure skating really is my favorite! I've probably watched this routine ten times and was telling everyone about it!
  • Finally put pictures in the picture frames  up above our bed. We hung them up in September...and apparently it takes me 5 months to order four pictures. We're saving the last two frames for upcoming event pictures :)
