This was definitely a big day for us. We had been waiting and wondering for months where the next and LAST part of Chill's training would be. Chill applied back in October 2010 for the fellowship program and in Jan/Feb 2011 he started all his interviews. He interviewed at 6 different programs in Arizona, New York, Florida, Utah, Texas, and Minnesota. It was tough trying to decide how to rank the programs and wondering if we should try and stay in Utah or if it was time for us to move out of state and take a little adventure for a few years. We really felt that moving out of state was right for us but our future would be decided by a computerized match. Chill had to put his rank list in by June 1st and then had to wait until June 15 to find out the results. On the Match Day we decided to head down to Lehi and find out at Chill's parents. We thought Chill would get an e-mail at 10:00 a.m. At 10:02 a.m. we were kind of stressing and getting a little anxious so he logged onto the website and there were the results. It was a relief to know that Chill had matched, and that he had matched in the program he was hoping for. We found out that we will be moving to
Rochester, Minnesota in July 2012
Chill will complete his fellowship in
Hematology/Oncology at the Mayo Clinic
I am very proud of Chill for all his hard work. All the crazy schedules/stressful schedules have been worth it. I can't believe we are about to be on the last leg of his training. We have definitely been blessed through it all. Yes I am a little nervous to move away from our families and from everything that is familiar, but also very excited for the opportunity to take an adventure. I know it will be good for us and our little family. Thank heavens we are moving there when it is warm so that I have time to get my food storage before the hibernation begins. I have heard wonderful things about Minnesota and it can't be all that bad if that is where the Mall of America is right???!!! That was all I needed to hear to be sold on the idea! After we got over the excitement of it all, called our family and friends, we spent time at the pool and had a little bbq!
