Some of you may know this already, but we've decided to return home to the US. Liz and I spent several weeks praying, thinking and talking about what we would do next in our lives before we came to a decision. Then we changed our minds. Many times. We have absolutely loved our time in both Taupo and Gisborne, but ultimately, our decision came down to family. Skype is great, but our boys are missing out on real time with grandparents, cousins, aunts & uncles; and Liz and I have been without parents, brothers & sisters, nieces & nephew for too long.
From a professional standpoint, it has been great to get experience in a much different health system and at a slower pace. But, it I'm to keep my ED skills up, I really need to be back in the States in a busy ED.
So, we've decided to return to the States. More precisely, to Louisville, Kentucky. We'll be there with Matt and Kamille and the girls. I have a contract with an ED group in Louisville, and we've rented a home for a short term while we search for something more permanent.
We're very excited to be returning, especially to be so close to family for the first time in a long time. So, Merry Christmas from the bottom of the world.
