It's been a good long while since I posted anything of substance on this blog. I think I counted 5 or something since I started medical school. That's probably a good thing because I probably would've gotten into trouble with HIPAA for writing about crazy patient experiences.
The real reason I took a break is that we started a new blog (littlebravesambo.blogspot.com) to chronicle our adventures with cystinosis after Sam was diagnosed. It was really helpful for us to write about our experiences to process everything, and over time the blog morphed into your typical "here's what our kids are up to" kind of blog. I think we feel like that blog has served its purpose, and our postings have become more and more sparse. After seeing some weird trafficking sources and pictures of our children on creepy European websites, we have decided to make that blog private. We definitely want to preserve the stories, photos and movies from the last four years, and we may add to it from time to time.
Lately I've been feeling the need to have an outlet where I can write about things that aren't necessarily directly related to my kids, so I figured it was time to revive the Elephant Gun. It could be fairly short-lived given that I will be starting residency training the end of June, but we'll see.
