At the Still Point of the Turning World
Residency is over, NOW what? (While I'm waiting for the answer, I'll get some spinning done....)

Look who managed to be born without my help:

This is Marius Alexander Jackson Bannwart, the newly-born son of one of my fellow residents, Phillipp, and his wonderful wife, Sarah. He's also my newest patient, since I took care of Sarah during her prenatal care. He was born at 9:16am on April 19th, while I was soundly asleep in my bed, dead to the world and to my pager, which was set on silent alert. So much for putting all my birthday and vacation plans on hold to be present at his birth--clearly he outsmarted me.

I would like to hold it against him, but he's just so darned cute.
