      Remember when I told you that I was supposed to work the day after I had Charlotte? Well, in the delivery room I called the head of the residency program (after I had seen her, of course), and told her that "sorry, baby came early so I won't be at work tomorrow," and I was told that I needed to find myself coverage for the next day? Now THREE, yes THREE of the categorical surgery residents (people who are actually going into surgery, unlike me who was doing a required year of preliminary surgery before anesthesia) are pregnant.
      I am really happy for all of them because Charlotte is the best thing that has ever happened to me, but I can't help but feel a little satisfied as well. Everyone made a very big deal when I told them I was pregnant. They were nice about it, but many people were sure to point out that nobody (nobody!) in the surgery residency at this hospital had ever had a baby. I think I started a trend. Ha ha ha. I wonder if they will make each of them find themselves coverage if their babies come early, and/or make them come back to work a week later.
