Just finished 5 weeks of specialty training in San Antonio, TX. While there, I received news of the sudden death of my beautiful niece, Isabella, who was 7 years old. She now joins her cousin, my son Samuel Stephen with our Father in heaven.

This time was one of the hardest times I have faced in my entire life. I was reliving Samuel’s death, not sleeping, alone, and having to remain professional and work hard 9 hours each day with patients and surgeries. I am home now, with my husband and furry friends. I am so very thankful to be here.
