Being a dad and a doctor is the only kind of dad I've ever been. I was in residency when our first two children were born, and then an ER doctor at St. Luke's when our youngest two were born. I'm sure, however, that it's very similar to being a dad in any other profession. When I get home, my kids don't really care that I'm a doctor. At home, I'm just daddy. I like it that way. Being a doctor is my career, and I love it, but that pales in comparison with being a husband and dad. Other dads with other careers have the same responsibilities and challenges I do. I'm very blessed to have my wife as such an incredible teammate in life.
