Well, ladies and gentlemen, the results are in, and James has MATCHED for a neurosurgery residency at.......(drumroll)......WASH U! (No, I'm actually not kidding.) After seeing all of the other top programs, he decided that he had it pretty good here at Wash U and didn't want to leave. He listed Wash U as his first choice, and he got it! We're both pretty excited....he's excited to stay, and I'm excited to finally be able to look for a job. It's so nice to just KNOW after wondering for so long.

So anyway, we'll be in St. Louis for 7 more years, except for 6 months in the middle when we'll be in Ireland. As a part of the program, you spend half of your fourth or fifth year in a hospital in Dublin. You guys will all have to come visit us while we're there! Okay, well I've got a whole bunch of guys in my apartment celebrating and watching the UFC Fight Night, so I think I'd better go keep an eye on things...
