I have typed and retyped this entry 4 times now, and nothing sounds right. I guess I can't really put into words how proud of Ben I am. He has accomplished so much already, and now is just starting down the really difficult part of the path but is so excited to learn e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g there is to know about bodies. It's seriously crazy how much he is has to memorize, even in the next 10 weeks. Crazy. I'm sure at some point it will get really tedious, but for now we hop into bed early every night and watch dissection videos and powerpoint slides, just to get a head start (and a stronger stomach) on the coming weeks in the cadaver lab. We are already planning a date night around a tour of the cadaver lab so I can really understand what he's doing every day. ha. I'm sure this makes me sound like I'm nuts, but I'm excited to learn along with him (but not have to actually have the stress of med school). Anyway, tomorrow is the beginning of the next four years for us and although I'm secretly terrified that I'll be too frequently lonely, I'm excited and proud and cheering my Ben on. GOOOOOOO DR. TRACY!!
