You Might Be A Doctor's Wife If...

Hi! It's Jilly. There are some little things that are kind of...different in your life if you are married to a doctor, especially a resident. I thought it would be fun to point some of these things out.

You might be a doctor's wife if...

  • the balance on your student loan statement is large enough to purchase your dream house.
  • "call" is a four-letter word.
  • you've ever been out-and-about with your family and someone has stopped your husband to ask him to look at his (fill in the blank).
  • your husband says excitedly, "I'm going in for surgery!".
  • you think whoever decided white coats should be white needs to be hunted down.
  • you nonchalantly say to your friend, "Oh, Hubby's at the hospital."
  • you've had dinner plans ruined by a case running late or the pager going off. 
  • people think you're rich because "your husband is a doctor." (See #1)
  • you wish that college had only been 7 years. Shut up, Richard...
Lots of people go to college for 7 years
  • a medical procedure has been done at your kitchen table.
  • you only get food from the "nice" restaurants when Hubby brings it home in a doggy bag from one of those drug rep dinners.
  • you wake up in the middle of the night to find his side of the bed empty...and it doesn't phase you.
  • you zone out when Hubby starts "talking shop" with one of his friends.
  • you find pictures of nasty wounds and infections on his phone.
  • the kids complain about an ailment and you say, "Just have Dad look at it when he gets home."
  • your Hubby takes the kids on a "date" to the hospital cafeteria.
What would you add to the list? ;)
