Lives of Doctor Wives: What would you do?

What would you do?

Okay so I was reading a post by Joy and it got me thinking.... Click here. So although I think it was meant to be encouraging, I must admit I found it absolutely horrifying (quite similar to some of your stories about applying to medical school). And I couldn't keep the post to myself so I had my hubby read it - much my my regret I made him drop to the floor in a fit in which he yelled at me for showing him that post. He was explaining to me about how he would always wonder what would have happened had the mistake not occurred and does not understand how Joy and her husband do not feel completely cheated. And I will also admit that we are now worried about having such an experience ourselves. (In fact I wonder if it happened to one of the neurosurgery candidates this year who had terrific stats and yet matched nowhere!). I know this is my legal nature but part of me wonders if there could be a lawsuit for this - I mean you truly are putting your lives in people's hands and for them to be so careless and negligent as to LOSE an applicant's information seems so wrong! I know most of us here are worry warts - so sorry for spreading the paranoia but I just am so bothered by it I had to share!

I think, in the end, there are so many factors, mistakes, politics, etc. that come into play that the one thing you can know for sure is that it is in the Lord's hands. You just have to let go and leave it to Him to lead you to where you should be. Whatever methods He used to get you there, you just have to be a peace knowing that it was for your sake.

I have learned that lesson in a HUGE way with Brad's match and now residnecy.

Wow, that is really disturbing. I would have to remind myself everyonce in a while to not worry about things that are out of my control. Props to them for staying so positive through out the whole thing!

That's so crazy! Luckily R has a really uncommon last name* and is probably the only person in this country with his full name.
But I agree, God certainly has His own way of answering prayers! :)

*Before I got married, one of my coworkers (a quirky middle aged legal secretary) looked up my new last name in the Brooklyn phone book to discover that nobody in Brooklyn, who's listed, has our last name.
