Honeymoon.
Tammy and I are starting our honeymoon today. In the coming two weeks, we will be travelling across a number of different countries. I will be away from the computer much more as we go about our day to day activities and commutes.
I will continue to update the blog as time allows. 
It has been a while since I had made any informative posts so if I may, I would like to share this little non-medical factoid.
Every month of the calendar year carries a different nickname for the moon. In June, the moon reaches its zenith in the night sky at its lowest point in the entire year. As a result of this and other astrological phenomena, the moon takes on a more orange or honey colour. This is where the term honeymoon originates.
All this to simply say, we are taking our honeymoon during the honeymoon.

Enjoy this song of the day that I had used for the first dance at our wedding reception. I hope everyone is enjoying their midweek evening.

That Familiar Feeling

When the chaos and dust had finally settled for our wedding, we were finally in bed by four in the morning. I awoke at seven to start the day yet again, a heavy fog clouding my mind, a hunger for sleep in the pit of my eyes, and a lumbering grogginess in my step.

A feeling began to well up inside me, a familiar emotional reaction I had not felt for a long time. A sense of running full sprint through an endurance course à la Le Mans.

I felt like I had just been on the busiest call shift to date.

After more than a year of planning, the day seemed to have come and gone in a blur. We had hurriedly scurried from one place to the next, ate little, and narrowly averted disasters, all while keeping up smiles and appearances for our guests.

In the end, the weather was perfect, everything flowed smoothly, and we all survived.

Sounds like just another day at work.

Thanks to everyone who has written in with well wishes and congratulations. Tammy and I are very humbled by your support as we approach our big day together.

On a different note, apologies for the break in form. There has obviously been a shortage of medically-themed posts recently but I assure you that will return in due time. Thanks again for your patience and understanding as we celebrate this once in a lifetime moment.

Sincerely,
Tammy and Tom

The Last Three Days.
Today marks the last three days before my life changes forever. Months of planning is finally beginning to take shape. While family and friends are starting to arrive, Tammy and I are keeping ourselves occupied with the last few things on our checklist. 
It will be a busy three days.

The Last Three Days.

This is the story of a boy meets a girl.

Over the past four years, I have spoken on many occasions about my partner, our relationship, and our challenges. Given that our wedding is fast approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to summarize our story, and properly introduce my fiancée to everyone.

May I introduce you to Tammy, my friend, my fiancée, my love. This is our story.

Greater than the sum of our parts.
In these past seven years, we have been through quite a journey together. I think I would be a different person without her. She has been my muse these past four years of writing and reflecting. In medicine, she has been the gentle breeze in my sail, my anchor during the storm, and my guiding star when I was lost and in the dark. 
She has my love forever and always.
N.B. A photograph from our engagement session. Just something special to share with everyone who has followed me all of these years.

Dog Days Are Over by Florence + the Machine.

Medical school has officially drawn to a close and it is time for me to focus my attention completely on the next big thing: the wedding. The momentum forward continues.

Today’s song is dedicated to my beautiful fiancée who has been with me through it all. I proposed a year ago today and our wedding plans for late spring have been coming along nicely. This song will be a part of our music selection for the day.

Thanks for the Reminder.
Word gets around these parts, I tell you. Alright, who spilled the beans to the barista?
