Semester One is coming to an end!

Luke and his buddies at DeChamps hangout.

Luke continues to study from 8:00 a.m. to midnight everyday (yes, that includes weekends.) I asked if he could send some pictures since my blog was looking dreary. He sent these along from a night out with fellow med students and a visiting girlfriend and sister of one of the guys.

He's really enjoying the anatomy labs he has each week. Because of his sports background and all of his injuries, he understands and can relate to his cadaver. He just had a patient lab test today, a gross anatomy test on Thursday, histology test next Friday, his Mini III the following Monday, then his finals a week later. Hooray, all done with semester one on August 16th. Please keep the prayers coming for his continued success. (And I can breathe a little easier each day for about three weeks knowing he's on break!!)

Mini Exam II Is Over- Straight AAAAAA's!

Luke worked from sun up to midnight each day to learn the material so he could get an edge on this test and he did great - all A's! He had a big smile when we Skyped him and seemed ready to relax a bit and finish up the semester in the next month. After the exam, he ran into Kyle's family and had a fun picture taken with Kyle and Russ, Kyle's dad. He then received his box in the mail and was thrilled to stock back up again on all of the goodies we try to send. It continues to be hot and rainy which makes everything "sticky." Keep up the great work Luke, only five weeks until semester one is over!!
