Interviewer "So, tell the folks out there how you made what could be the single biggest decision of your life."
Me "Well, it's warmer there..." and I give a shrug.
Anyway, I called MDA at 5 and told them yes, then got online and started making travel arrangements. How did they do all of this before the internet??? By 6, the tickets were purchased and we were leaving for the airport at 4:30 am the next morning. Which brings us to now.
This place is HUGE. Bigger than HUGE. First, there's MD Anderson itself. By my count, a dozen or so big buildings with many stories. Also here are other huge facilities. Several hospitals, medical schools, nursing schools, pharmacy schools and the like. Go to Google Maps and check out the satellite view and get a hint of what it's like.
Thanks to everyone back home who's offered advice, love, support and handling of all those things that must be done regardless of what else is going on. Our family and friends are amazing. Joe and I are fully focused on the job at hand. God bless!
