These past two weeks things have been quite hectic. I came home from Moose to start an elective at McMaster - 1 week of general obs/gyne and 2 weeks of maternal fetal medicine. The week of general obs/gyne was fantastic. I recommend anyone who is doing medical electives in Ontario to request a general obs/gyne elective in Brantford through McMaster. I just started MFM yesterday. The good thing is that I'm working with two really cool docs and I'm the only student in their clinic. The bad thing is that there are many many medical students on the ward and in L and D. I wanted to do some call while I'm here, but feel like I'm stepping on the new clerks' toes if I do (they just started on Monday doing their core obs/gyne rotation). The clerk who's on call on Thursday when my preceptor is on call really wants obs/gyne and I don't want to steal any deliveries from her. Maybe I should just stick to clinics.

Anyhoo. I'll write more about my trip to Kash later. Ben and I are going for a walk outside in the wonderful sunshine. Oh, and, the stones are coming in for me to choose my center stone for my engagement ring! I almost have it!

Will it be anything like the ring you posted ages ago?

Hey M&2S,
I tried on a bunch of those rings and I realized that you have to get a stupid weird shaped wedding ring to go with them. So, it will be a bit different. We've chosen a pink sapphire as the center stone and it has clusters of diamonds around it. i'll post a picture when I get it!

WOW! That above description of your ring sounds absolutely gorgeous. I'm still waiting for a picture.
