Christmas Already?

Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted anything in an entire month. Sorry! Rotations are going great; I LOVE Child Psych. As in LOVE so much that I'm thinking it might be my career choice!

Anyways back to the reason for the post. Christmas is almost here. This is our first Christmas as "The Adcock Family." Today marks 10 months that we've been married. We love each other more today than on our wedding day. Time flies when you're having fun!

I just loved decorating our little apartment. My wonderful mother-in-law took us to buy new ornaments from Hobby Lobby, so our tree looks great!

(I'm currently on Eric's Mac computer and not having much luck uploading the pictures of our tree, so I'll post them from my computer in a bit.)

Sorry I have not blogged anything lately. Life has been pretty crazy right now. I am doing surgery this month for my clerkship. I was terrified of surgery. I knew I would hate surgery and thought I was going to be miserable all month long. It turns out I kind of like it except for the hours.

I am out in Richmond, MO which is about 65 miles from our house, so that adds on an extra 2 1/2 hours to my day with the drive time. I've been getting up at 5:00 am to be at the hospital for 7:30. We have three different hospitals that we work at, and the surgeon is the only general surgeon for all three hospitals. That means he is on call 24/7! We start at 7:30 am and finish around 6:30 pm which means I don't get home until close to 8. I feel like I've been neglecting Eric a bit this month, but he is so understanding which is great.

The surgeries I have seen include a ton of gallbadders, hernias, hemorrhoids, breast biopsies, lumpectomies, mastectomies, and a ton of skin lesions/cysts. From day one, the surgeon had me making 2 of the 4 gallbladder incisions. The first day he let me try to close up my one little incision in the time he closed his 3. Lets just say I wasn't close to finishing in the time he closed up all 3 haha. By the third surgery, I had it down. When we do the mastectomies for breast cancer we split the incision in half and race to see who finishes closing first. After a week and a half, he started to just walk out of the OR and leave me in there to close all by myself. In the clinic I have shaved off some skin lesions all by myself and even placed the stitches. :) The patients have even commented that I've done a great job!

I am very lucky to have received such a great preceptor. He is very patient with me and makes comments such as don't worry you have all month to learn. There is a possibility of surgery as a career choice, but I'm not sure if I could handle the hours. Also, I'm not sure if my body can handle standing for so long. My knees have been killing me when I get home and they get swollen as the day goes on. Hoping to get some good shoes for Christmas, so that might make a difference. I am enjoying things and still can't believe I'm so close to being a doctor.

Next month is my elective in Child Psychiatry.

Paging Dr. Adcock

This last week we had a patient that came in with bursitis. A bursa is a fluid filled sac at a joint that helps to lubricate the joint. Well bursitis is when this bursa gets inflamed. Due to the inflammation, more fluid is made. This little sac then expands with excess fluid. Here is a picture I found online.

See the big knots on his elbows? Those are bursa that have become inflamed. You're probably thinking ok no big deal so what. Well to take care of these, the doctor has to aspirate it (drain it with a needle). OUCH!!!!

Well the doctor got everything set up and then while slapping the stool, said "have a seat." He walked me through the injection to numb it as well as aspirating it. WOOHOO!

Not a big deal, but one more thing I've done that only doctors can do.

I Secretly Married Josh Hamilton

So most of yall know that Eric and I are HUGE Texas Rangers fans. If you didn't know that, now you do. We use to go to games way back when we first started dating 7 1/2 years ago. That was well before they were good, so we didn't just jump on the bandwagon.

Last Tuesday when the Rangers won their first post-season series, we both shed a tear. We were so excited!!!! Eric said, "the smile on my face might just be as big as the one when you walked down the isle." That sure got him a nice look from me. He then responded, "The smile might just be bigger if they win the World Series." WHAT? haha

After they won Tuesday night, we jumped on stub hub to get tickets for the American League Championship Series. Eric and his dad went to so many games growing up just hoping for a good year. They went to a playoff game back in the day. Lets just say they've been waiting for this season for a long time. His parents got us tickets to Saturday's game, so we decided to drive to Dallas for a quick weekend trip. But wait it gets better.

I told Eric I get done on Friday at 12, so maybe we could leave around 3 if you can get off a little early. He looked at me and said, "But the game is at 7 on Friday, and I don't want to miss it." I then responded well we can listen to it on the radio. His response was, "But I want to watch it on tv." (with an ever so cute pouting bottom lip) So we left Kansas City Friday night at 10:45. Yep we drove all through the night, and made it to Greenville at 6:45 am on Saturday. We went to sleep right when we got there and slept until 9:30 am. Then it was time to get ready for the game.

If you didn't know. The Rangers WON Saturday!!!! WOOHOO!!!! It was such an amazing game. Here are some pictures from our quick trip to the ballpark.

Our seats were on the fourth row of the upper deck. They were really good seats. We could see everything that was going on plus we were in the shade.
We were super excited that the Rangers won!!!

What a great game!

On another note. I think I married Josh Hamilton! haha Not really. I have a little crush on Josh Hamilton. Eric laughs at me. He's an amazing player, and has a really great story. I tell Eric the only reason I have a crush on him is because he has blonde curly hair, blue eyes, and gets hurt running into outfield walls. Eric dislocated his big toe the day I met him trying to make a play in a college baseball game, and Josh Hamilton fractured a couple ribs while trying to make a play at Target Field. Here is a picture of Josh Hamilton for you to compare. Don't you think they look a little bit alike?


This is all in fun. I love you Eric!!!!

My goal is to look like her. Want to know my secret? P90X!!!!

I lost roughly 12 lbs for the wedding. Well now that we've been married for 7 1/2 months, I have gained back all 12 lbs plus some. Thanks sweetie!!! I weighed myself last Wed at the doctor's office and then again this past Monday. I had lost 1 lb!!!! I know it's not much but you gotta start some where.

We even took before pictures, but I won't be posting those until the end. I will post my before and after pictures to show you my results.

Last week Eric and I started P90X workouts. Then this Monday we decided to go ahead and add on the nutrition plan which is intense. The entire program is 90 days long. It's broken up into 30 day increments. After 30 days the workouts change so does the nutrition plan.

Here is what was on the menu for me today.
(Eric's menu looked the same except for his portions were larger)

6 egg white omelet with 1 oz fat free mozzarella cheese
2 pieces of turkey bacon
8 oz skim milk

Morning Snack:
protein snack bar (I like special k chocolate peanut butter)

6 oz of shrimp stir fry which had shrimp, onion, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts, and broccoli
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 oz cashews

Afternoon Snack:
1 fat free string cheese

6 oz chicken breast with pesto
1/2 cup zucchini
1 cup brown rice

So if you're a friend of mine here in KC, next time you see me just humor me. Make some comment about wow looks like you've lost weight please. Even if it's not true just say it to make me feel better haha. I always start workout programs with good intentions, but when I don't see results I give up.

Paging Dr. Adcock

(Wow it's kind of weird to see Dr. Adcock and to think that really is my last name even after 7 months)

As many of yall know, I am done with the classroom portion of my medical school career :) In August I started my 2 years of clerkship. The next 2 years I will spend 1 month at a time in different specialties. I thought I would kind of update everyone on the fun things I'm doing.

August: I spent the month in an outpatient internal medicine clinic. I was very nervous with this being my first rotation, and the fear of the unknown set in. The doctor I was with was very laid back and it was a nice ease into things. This doctor didn't really let me do much on my own, but that was ok for the first month.

After the first week I started seeing patients on my own. I would go in and get the full history of what's going on and do the physical exam such as ears, nose, throat, heart, lungs or range of motion if it was joint pain. I got to see a lot of hypertension, cholesterol, and diabetes. I did however get to perform a few prostate exams and observed well women exams. The doctor also let me do a lot of OMT on patients with back/neck pain. (this is the portion of osteopathic medicine that is similar to chiropractic)

September: This month I am in a small family medicine clinic with a physician who is semi-retired. I was not thinking I would like this month due to the slower pace, but I have enjoyed this month much more. Even though this doctor is 68, he has let me be all hands on. From day one he handed me the chart, so I'm the one documenting everything and the one writing the prescriptions. (I did not do either of these last month) I have seen a lot of allergies, sinus infections and UTIs.

On Monday we had a mole removal, which I saw quite a few of those last month. However, this doctor handed me the scalpel after he numbed it and outlined the margin and said just follow the margins. I was the one who removed the mole. Then he put in one stitch while explaining to me in great detail. Then he handed me the suture kit and said now your turn. The patient was great. He was a younger gentleman and the mole was on his calf. He was very patient and said sure keep practicing, that's fine. The doctor was very patient with me as well while I fumbled with the tools a bit. I put in 2 stitches and I was so excited!!!

I've even gotten to see some kiddos. I love it!!! :)

Campground Tornado

This weekend Eric and I went camping with our friends Jen and Phil. We went up to Smithville Lake in Missouri which is about an hour north from our place. It was an eventful weekend to say the least.
Jen and I set up the campground all by ourselves before the guys got there. Sorry the pics are bad. They're all from my iphone.
We watched a beautiful sunset over the lake.

Friday night, Yeah Yeah some how got loose off his chain. We had both dogs staked down. I looked over and I only saw one dog. At this point it was pitch black except for our campfire. My heart sunk thinking I would never see this lil guy anymore. All 4 of us grabbed our flashlights and I jumped in my car. We looked for about 10 minutes. Then Jen jumped on the back of my car to help me look and then here comes this little guy running towards us from about 100 yards away. It was like he was thinking "what's all the commotion about? What are yall looking for?" Yeah-Yeah is our ADHD dog who gets distracted and just goes off on his own. It's not that he runs to get free, he just explores on his own. He had his own little adventure Friday night.

We had been watching the weather all week hoping it wasn't going to rain. Friday it showed no rain, but then Saturday morning they were showing rain. The weather turned out to be perfect EXCEPT for Saturday night around midnight. It was storming pretty bad for about an hour then it just rained all night. Once we got home, Jen found out there was actually a tornado on the lake that ruined some houses with winds up to 90 mph. Kinda scary now that I think about it.

Before we went to bed we watched an amazing lightning storm over the lake.

Both boys curled up next to Eric after a night of storming.
Bauer was exhausted after a very eventful weekend. He slept in his bed the entire drive home.
This was Yeah-Yeah's spot all afternoon once we got home.

Sunday: Dinner with the in-laws

Saturday, August 7, 2010


So I finished up with MBA classes a week ago, and I started my first rotation on Monday. (that'll be a separate post). Eric wanted to go on a baseball trip before rotations started so we could have a weekend just the two of us before the madness began.

With Minneapolis only being a 6 1/2 hr drive, we decided lets go for the weekend. Eric took off work on Friday, so we got on the road at 6 am and drove back Sunday afternoon. Since our wedding reception was at a Marriott, we had enough points to get a free hotel room for the weekend.

Other than my horrible sinus infection, we had a great time exploring a new ballpark. This was the first season at Target Field for the Twins. The stadium was really nice, not our favorite though. We decided we don't want to live in Minneapolis. Here are some pictures from the fun weekend.

These things were all over downtown with different pictures all on them.

We went here for dinner one night. It was a British pub with very heavy food. Eric loved it, me not so much. It was just ok.

You can't go to Minneapolis without going to Mall of America. We didn't do any shopping but walked around the entire mall. We were there for about 3 1/2 hrs.

The crazy amusement park INSIDE the mall.

Those dinosaurs are made out of legos. This entire area was built with legos. Every little boy's dream, including Eric's :)

This ballpark was beautiful. It was a very modern park with stone and glass everywhere.

Our current baseball count includes Ballpark in Arlington, Kaufman Stadium, Dolphin Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Busch Stadium, Wrigley Field, and now Target Field.

Autopsy... Check!

CAUTION: This might be a little graphic for some. There are no pictures and no gross descriptions, but I will be talking about an autopsy. I just wanted to give you a warning to continue at your own risk.

The school requires us to attend an autopsy before 3rd year rotations start. Well rotations start in 1 week for me, so I figured I've been putting it off for too long. I was not looking forward to this experience. I got an email yesterday after church that there was an autopsy only 30 minutes away, so I decided to go.

The pathologist threw me into it right from the beginning. He made the initial cuts and then gave me the scalpel. He told me where to cut and was guiding my hand. After that I decided this wasn't so bad. He cut out the first lung and was explaining to me what he was doing. He cut out the second lung and handed it to me and said do what I just did. AGH!!! I also got to stitch up the entire abdomen.

They were thinking it was a drug overdose, but it turned out to be sepsis due to a kidney infection. They did send off for toxicology to see if they were drugs in the system on top of the infection.

It was such an amazing learning experience. In the anatomy lab, the bodies do not look real at all. The organs are hard and usually white. Here the organs looked like they were suppose to look. I'm really glad I got this opportunity, but I do not plan on attending anymore autopsies. Yay for steps to becoming a doctor. :)

Storm Chasing

Eric loves weather. He really enjoys it when it's anything but normal outside. Friday was a gorgeous day here until about 5pm. It started to get dark, but I didn't know we were suppose to get a storm. Eric called me when he got into the parking lot and asked for me to grab his camera and come outside so we could go storm chasing. (He was hoping to capture pictures of a tornado)

We decide to sit in the parking lot of the Sears Outlet near our place. Below are some of the pictures Eric captured. The clouds did appear to be swirling, so he was hoping we would see a tornado. I on the other hand was hoping we wouldn't because we were in his car in an empty parking lot. The wind sure was blowing hard, so I was a bit nervous.

The storm lasted about 45 minutes and then the sun came back out and it was gorgeous!

I Passed!!!

Board scores were posted today, and I passed!!!! Not only did I pass, but I rocked it. I was well above national average. This was the first big hurdle of becoming a doctor. Now I only have rotations and Step 2 boards between myself and becoming a doctor.

Eric and I celebrated with icecream at Coldstone. The inlaws are coming into town this weekend, so it will be a weekend of celebration :)

Sprinkles Anyone?

Sprinkles Cupcakes were a treasure Eric and I discovered back in Dallas. It's a gourmet cupcake shop that started in California. There are over 25 different flavors to try. We did find a gourmet cupcake place in Overland Park a few weeks ago, but it was not as good as Sprinkles.

Well yesterday on TLC there was a marathon of Cake Boss. Great show if you've never seen it. While watching the show, there were commercials for DC Cupcakes. Every time I saw the commercial, I thought of Sprinkles.

Well I didn't feel too great today. My stomach was bothering me all afternoon. When I would stay home sick from school when I was younger, I would always bake. I don't know why but it made me feel better. It was usually just a box cake, but tonight I wanted to tackle cupcakes.

I found a recipe online for Sprinkles Strawberry Cupcakes, my favorite. YUMMY!!! The recipe is below. I didn't let the cupcakes cool quite as long as needed so the frosting got a little runny. They still tasted GREAT! I can't wait to try gourmet cupcakes next time :)

Sprinkles Strawberry Cupcakes

  • 2/3 cup whole fresh or frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners; set aside.
  2. Place strawberries in a small food processor; process until pureed. You should have about 1/3 cup of puree, add a few more strawberries if necessary or save any extra puree for frosting; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a small bowl, mix together milk, vanilla, and strawberry puree; set aside.
  4. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and continue to beat until well combined and fluffy. Reduce the mixer speed to medium and slowly add egg and egg whites until just blended.
  5. With the mixer on low, slowly add half the flour mixture; mix until just blended. Add the milk mixture; mix until just blended. Slowly add remaining flour mixture, scraping down sides of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary, until just blended.
  6. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Transfer muffin tin to oven and bake until tops are just dry to the touch, 22 to 25 minutes. Transfer muffin tin to a wire rack and let cupcakes cool completely in tin before icing.
Strawberry Icing
  • 1/2 cup whole frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, firm and slightly cold
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Place strawberries in the bowl of a small food processor; process until pureed. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter and salt on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce mixer speed and slowly add confectioners' sugar; beat until well combined. Add vanilla and 3 tablespoons strawberry puree (save any remaining strawberry puree for another use); mix until just blended. Do not overmix or frosting will incorporate too much air. Frosting consistency should be dense and creamy, like ice cream.

Dream Interpretation

Alright so I had a crazy dream lastnight. I need a little help here because I have no idea what it means. If anyone out there in blogger land has some experience in dream interpretation just let me know. My mother in law is a psychologist and does some dream interpretation. I don't want to ask her because there's no telling what it means haha.

My dream:

I am in highschool again on my way to lunch. The school in my dream was the high school I went to. Everything looked the same. There is blood on the floor smeared followed by a trail by the stairs. Rumor around school is that there's a killer dog on campus that has already killed 2 people. (now we have 2 dogs but they are by no means killer dogs haha)

I sit at my usual table by the large wall of windows. Our table is the closest one to the doors to leave the school in the back. Then in comes this dog with a police officer following it. It was a female police officer. (no I have not had any run ins with the law) The dog comes to our table and I quickly jump on top of the table because of course not a big dog can't reach me if I'm on the table haha. The dog comes up and is sniffing our table but doesn't bother us. The police officer some how manages to shoo the dog out of the school.

Later that afternoon I have to step outside for something. I don't know if I was having to go to the other building or what. As I walk out of the school there's the stupid dog. I quickly grab ahold of the awning above the door and pull myself up. At my school there were no awnings above the doors so I have no idea. This is kind of fuzzy. I just remember I had my feet up on one bar and hanging on the other bar so my butt is hanging down. The dog keeps jumping up to get me and each time I'm pulling myself up and then hanging. Very exhausting! I'm yelling the entire time HELP! No one comes for what seems like an hour. I think this is were I woke up because I don't remember anything else.

So all you dream experts, what does it mean?

Dream in a nut shell: I'm back in my high school as a student, killer dog on campus, dog is trying to get me. hmmm

Enjoy reading into my dream :)

Meal Planning Monday

I found a new website to get healthy recipes from, so we're going to give some new recipes a try this week. What's for dinner?

Monday: Crockpot Roast with Potatoes and Carrots

: Pollo Sabroso

: Shrimp and Avocado Quesadillas

: Spaghetti and Meatballs

: Date Night!!! The Melting Pot, at home! We got a real fondue pot for our wedding, and we love The Melting Pot. It is just so expensive! I found a copy cat recipe online that I'm going to try for their broth. We will have shrimp, chicken, and steak. I'm excited!!!

(I tried to post the links for the recipes, but it kept freaking out on me. If you want one of the recipes above just leave a comment and I will post it below.)

A Female!

I've had flowers on my plant for about 2 weeks now, but no veggies. I looked online to see what was going on. I just love the internet! I found that if there are no veggies then your female flowers aren't getting pollinated by the male flowers. (The flowers are on my balcony at the apartment, so there aren't any bees to pollinate) The website recommended taking a q-tip and rubbing the male flower then rubbing the pollen on the female flower. Well all my flowers looked the same so I was like how do you tell female from male. This morning I went out to "pollinate" my flowers and this is what I found.

This is my new flower. All of my flowers have looked like the one below, so this is my first female :) Sorry it's a little blurry. See the inside how there are 4 little stems.

Online it kept showing the female with the 4 stems like above, but I wasn't seeing those on mine. I thought oh maybe it's under the pollen or something. This one just has a single fat stem covered by pollen. The website also said look for the swelling under the flower for the "ovary" part and I have that too!

See that bulge behind the flower. WOOHOO!!!! I should have a little vegetable soon. Then I will be able to tell if this is my squash or zucchini plant haha.

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I've Got Flowers!!!

I have flowers on my squash or zucchini plants. There are some more blooms under the leaves that you can't see in the picture or that have already opened and now shriveled up. I moved the plants around a few times on the balcony, and I don't remember which plant is what. Both the squash and zucchini plants look pretty similar. These leaves are a little wider than the other. My zucchini plants started growing first, so I'm thinking they might be the zucchini. The other plants have buds and should be blooming by tomorrow. I can't wait until I have some veggies :)

Royals Game

Eric and I went to a Royals Game for my birthday 2 weeks ago. Eric hadn't been to Kauffman Stadium yet, so this was another stadium checked off our list. :) We had a lot of fun, but decided these games are a lot like the minor league games we use to go to back in Dallas. There is just so much entertainment. Not many people are actually watching the game. The couple right next to us kept getting up every single inning. There is even a Ferris Wheel, Gaming Center to play baseball, and Putt Putt back behind outfield. REALLY? None of this was at Wrigley Field that's for sure.

Here are a few pictures from our fun date!

As you can tell, not too many people are at the game even though it's a Friday night game.

This was Eric's idea now that I'm an Adcock! haha
In the hall of fame they had a lot of stuff on George Brett. Here is the infamous pine tar bat.

This was all out of baseballs. The pine tar on this bat was a lot higher than the previous bat.

I tried to give coupons a shot this past weekend with my grocery shopping. I was pretty excited for my first time. I ended up saving $29.50 with the coupons. I have a friend from highschool who is a pro! I want to figure out how to use the CVS extracare bucks to save there. Here is what I did.

First I got online to look up the specials at the local grocery store. Then I decided to figure out my meal plan off of the meats on sell. That was an idea given to me from a friend at church. Then I got on website to clip coupons. Here are a few big ones I got off the specials and coupons.

2/$3 Prego Sauce plus free box of pasta
Buy One Get One Men's Deodorant for free
Nature Valley Granola Bars on sale plus a coupon!
Eggs on sale plus a coupon at the store!

It took some time Saturday evening to figure it out, but it was worth the money it saved me. :)

If you have any coupon advice leave below. Do you have any websites you use?

The Garden

Here is a garden update. The squash and zucchini plants are HUGE! No veggies yet, but we're not giving up. The tomatoes are growing too but not quite large enough for tomatoes. Basil and Cilantro look great; I think I can pick them soon. The oregano died on me :( The bell peppers finally started growing, so we transplanted one into it's own pot. We need to get a few more pots for a few more bell peppers. We haven't planted the strawberry seeds yet, but maybe we can do that today. I have definitely found me a new hobbie!
