At the end of every resident year, there are a number of awards given out to residents who demonstrated qualities that were above and beyond the normal expectations. Most of the awards are for senior residents, however there is one award given to an intern called the "Iron Intern" award. Now, Josh is not one to ever brag about himself but since I'm his wife and I write this blog, I'm allowed to brag for him. Of the 11 interns this past year (6 categorical, 5 preliminary) all of whom were very hardworking and strong general surgery interns, Josh was awarded the Iron Intern award for outstanding service this year.
On top of this great award, we got to celebrate with a nice dinner out for the chief resident graduation dinner put on by the program. My sister-in-law Kristin was actually out here from California and lovingly agreed to watch Ryan for us so that we could enjoy the evening. We got to get all dressed up and even though I was 30+ weeks pregnant, huge, and unable to drink and Josh had to work the next day, we still had a thoroughly enjoyable evening out.
