Dr. McDreamy

So I did finally hear from Drew a little after ten last night. Turns out he was taking call. He seemed okay with it even though he wasn't exactly prepared for it. And although he didn't have his toothbrush he did have some of those new Colgate wisps on him. He said that he did get some time in the O.R. both yesterday and today.
Drew said everyone seems friendly and he feels comfortable there already. So far from just from my perceptions of yesterday and today this program is a little different from his last two away rotations. It seems a little more laid back and less intense. For example he usually stayed until at least 6 or 7 p.m. when he was post call at the first two programs. Today when he was post call people kept asking him "What are you still doing here?" Since they were encouraging him to leave Drew decided to leave at little before 2 p.m! He figured he would take advantage of the free time to work out and get some rest since there wasn't anything exciting going on in the O.R.
Another thing is that he actually got four and a half hours of sleep last night which is more than he is used to from the other two rotations.
Oh and get this... they gave him food vouchers for the cafeteria! How awesome is that! I'm very excited about this since a large chunk of our most recent credit card statement can be attributed to chicken caesar wraps from away rotation #2. I've already told Drew that I expect him to at least try and not spend much more than the food vouchers he was given. After all he still has quite a bit of food, snacks and granola bars that I bought for him.
And in case you are wondering about the title of this post... I have a little story. Early this morning while Drew was going to get some coffee he passed a few young women standing in the hall (what they were doing there at such early hours he doesn't know) but after he passed them he overheard them say "ooooh, Dr. McDreamy....." Drew told me this story to remind me how lucky I am. So just so you all know, apparently I am married to (sigh/swoon) "Dr. McDreamy" Oh man as if I don't have a hard enough time humbling him already!

I don't think a week went by during my husband's intern year when he didn't come home and tell me about some patient who either inquired about his dating status either herself or tried to set him up with her daughter/granddaughter. Apparently, his wedding ring was not obvious enough?? I have to confess that, particularly since we are in a long-distance marriage so I am not around to stake my claim for the several years (not that I don't trust him, I don't trust the other women when he says his wife lives a few states away!), I am glad he is a radiologist and his patient contact is minimal during most of his rotations. :)

S got cafeteria vouchers too during his last rotation! What a difference that makes :)
Probably nice for him to have more relaxed month for him.... hope the month flies by for you two :)

To be honest, when I stumbled across your blog and saw the pictures, I thought the same thing! Lucky woman. :)

I need to find a similar nickname for my law school hubby. Maybe Dreamy, Esq? Doesn't quite have the same ring, though.

That is too funny! What a nice little pick-me-up for him after a hard day's work.
