Saved the best for last


Yesterday, Eric had to go into school to finish up a few things so I had him clean my teeth - for the first time! He did an amazing job. Worth the $200k.... I guess we'll see the first time he has to give me an injection. I was officially his last patient. Kind of fitting wouldn't you think? Afterwards, I made him pose for pictures with his clinic directors and around the school. He was a good sport. I got chocked up when we were walking away to go get in the car. It really is an accomplishment, something I could never do.

I still don't think it's hit him that he has nothing more to finish up. He still has this ingrained voice in his head telling him he still has to do this, and this, and then he'll be done - and no, it's not me talking. We went today to pick up his gown so the end is in sight. Thursday our family starts showing up and we are so excited to see everybody....more later.

Way to go Eric! You look great in that Utah Jazz powder blue! Sorry we couldn't be there. If it weren't for my midterms we would be there to yell for you. It would have been really fun to hang out with you guys in WI.

Nice work Eric. I too love the Jazz powder blue scrubs. Very fitting since you will want to convert after the Lakers won't make it past the second round. Wait, this is your day...I'm kidding Eric, the Lakers are wonderful. (tomorrow is not your day and Kobe is going to wish it was only his back that hurt!)

You guys mean Denver Nugget Blue??? The Jazz stole their color because they couldn't come up with anything better. How boring are the Jazz uniforms? Whatever happened to their green/purple/white?

Lakers in 6 games.

It seems like it took a few months (after graduating) before Rod stopped dreaming and thinking about all the papers, patients, boards that he had to finish up. I remember feeling like we were on vacation visiting family and it would only be a matter of time before we would be on the road headed back to Milwaukee. Even the other day, one of the kids asked me where Dad was and I told him "at school". It takes a while, but it is GREAT! GO JAZZ!

YAY! Congrats on all your hard work. I am impressed that you let him touch your mouth. Now that is LOVE!! Good luck with the move. And have an AWESOME graduation.
