Dr. Wagner

The most recent exciting event in our family was Marcus's graduation from medical school. He has been in his residency at UF for one month now, and it has been just as difficult as we expected it to be. He works a 30-hour shift from 6 am one day until noon the following day (staying up all night with maybe 2 hours of sleep, if he’s lucky), takes a nap in the afternoon, then goes in for 10 hours the next day. Then the cycle resumes, leaving him working 80+ hours each week (with staying up all night every 3rd night). It really is an inhumane work schedule, and we’re glad that he’ll have a better schedule for the month of August.
