It was only 6 years ago that we began the adventure known as "dental school."
Time went by fast, and before we knew it:
Dana was graduating Dental School and swearing in for the Air Force. We thought that we might just be in for a quick 3 years.
Three years turned into four when we decided that a residency program in Nebraska would be a good idea. Dana learned a lot at residency but the two primary pieces of knowledge were:
1. He really liked Oral Surgery
2. He really liked the Air Force
So, we moved to Okinawa for what we thought was going to be three years. Dana has been enjoying work because he does surgery 4 days a week. I have been enjoying life because we have been on a paid tropical vacation for the past 14 months (that is Dana on the left).
Then Dana took a test or two and did an interview or two and was offered this:
A slot for the 2009 Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program at a stateside airbase. And you know what? He accepted it.
We are comin' home!
P.s. You know that quick 3 years we were going to do in the Air Force? Well, that just turned into 11. Sweet Mercy, someone give me some chocolate!
