While We Were Out

As you can imagine, while we took a blog break...a few noteworthy events happened in our lives. Instead of including them all in one post...and then failing to post again for some time(not the most popular way to go I've learned), I've decided to spread them out over a few different posts. So, first on my list, and he won't be happy about this, Adam!








Some of you know that Adam had to take his final oral surgery boards in February to become board certified. So naturally he started studying the first weekend in January. And when I say weekend, I mean a few hours on Saturday. So he gets to the Boards in Dallas on Valentines day and sees some of his buddies from his program. They tell him that they've been studying for months and months, they've taken all kinds of review coarses, and two of them that lived in the same state had met up on the weekends to go over different oral surgery case senarios.

So the next day he took the board and we had to wait about 6 weeks to find out.

Of course he passed-we all knew he would. It's official! Adam is now board certified! Yea!

So...a long awaited CONGRATS to the most brilliant man I know. I don't know alot of people who could study as little as he did and still do amazing. He's so awesome!

Congratulations Adam! Way to go. You had me going...for a second I was thinking that you were going to tell us that he failed...phew! Good job!

So...um...the St. Geo, huh? I'm there. I'm so glad you're there too! Of course we should run it together!!

Let's catch up soon.

Bravo, Adam!! Very impressive! Since he passed with so little studying effort, aren't you so glad he didn't waste every free hour for months and months studying like those other guys?!?
