Are you a highly energetic person who hops out of bed ready to save the world? Do you really enjoy helping people? Are you not even a little grossed out by oozing green snot or wounds gushing blood? Then being a doctor might be the right career for you!
Today, we interview Dr. Kim Milhoan about her career as an anesthesiologist.
What's your career?
I am a pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist. That means I take care of children who have heart disease when they need anesthesia for heart surgery or any other type of procedure.
Ever felt like your life was really messed up? Maybe you made a mistake and you're feeling like nothing will ever be right again? Well, guess what. You're not the only one who's ever messed up. And there is hope for you and all of us!
Lately I’ve been reading the life of David in my Bible study time, and you know what I realized? He was really messed up. Now, don’t get me wrong, I mean, David was a great guy. He kept the enemies of Israel at bay; even though Saul was trying to kill him, David told Saul he would not kill God’s king.
David was even called a man after God’s own heart. Do you realize all the bad stuff He did?
This fall, I have officially raised three daughters into adulthood. Scary, I know. One thing that means is I have thrown a lot of princess parties in twenty-three years. A LOT. We have the pink, glitter, magic wand thing down I tell you.
But there's a princess we introduced our girls to at around nine and eleven that was rather unusual. Not the typical Disney strain. And over the years since then, our girls have learned a lot from Princess Eowyn about standing your ground and learning to fight—like a girl.
