Hail to the Chief!


Charles on his first day of work as a resident! (2006)


Today I got a call from my husband telling me he has been elected Chief Resident of the Anesthesiology Department at OU medical center! I am so happy for him... he has worked so hard through four years of undergrad, four more years of medical school and three (going on four) years of residency. We are both seeing the light at the end of this long tunnel and it is a sweet, beautiful light!! I have watched him through the years evolve into an intelligent, confident, compassionate, and respected physician. He is such a good man with a good heart and I know he will do a great job in this leadership role. Should make for another interesting year in the life of a resident's wife! Way to go Charles... We are all so proud!
