But, I decided after hearing Wendell McKoy tell of how busy their {laughter, Charlotte Ann, is at University Hospital inBirmingham, where she is a senior surgical resident in her 4th year -- most of us just think we're busy! Charlotte Ann has already completed pediatric residency at Children's Hospital a couple of years ago and is therefore a full pledged pediatrician but wanted to further her education in surgery. Wendell said that when he and his wifetell people that they have to have an appointment to get to see their daughter, they find that hard to believe. Actually, they could make an appointment and may or may not get to see her. He and his wife, Charlotte, drop- by on a recent weekend and CharlotteAnn had emergency room duty. They called the hospital hoping to have dinner with her, but u accident victim had just been brought in which meant about 3 hours or longer in surgery. They had dinner alone and asked her to call the next morning when she could have breakfast. She called st 7:30 to tell them that an emergency appendectomy had just ar- rived, requiring her immediate, attention again for a couple or three hours. They left without even getting a glimpse of their daughter that particular weekend. However, occasionally they drop by when she is just on call and have a perfectly normal weekend. I don't have to tell you that Wendell and Charlotte are absolutely bursting with pride over tbeirdaughter's accomplishments.
