Our little boy is now 7 months old. It all feels like a blur. I drew/wrote the following story on the first day that my wife had to return to her duties as Chief Resident, 6 weeks after giving birth to our baby. We knew it would be a hard day. We didn’t realize just how hard it would be. We were both emotional.
Returning to work and leaving baby at home is hard. Unfortunately it can be more difficult when in medicine. My wife will start her fellowship this July, and I know that means busy days and long hours. She is nothing short of amazing when it comes to being a wife, mom, and a doctor. I hope this book will bring her, and our boy, some comfort. I am sharing it thinking maybe it’ll help other wonderful physician moms out there.
