Five years ago we started to discuss the possibility of Shane studying medicine....Little did we know that this would result in us packing our 205 boxes, our furniture , our 2 cars, our cat and dog and four beautiful kids, leaving Melbourne, friends and family and starting a new life on the Gold Coast! To say that this was a HUGE undertaking is an understatement. Now here we are four years in to this program and Shane is at the end of his MBBS . On the 13th December - when he graduates I will finally be able to call him Doctor!!! I have to learn to say this without laughing at the same time - the whole thing is SO surreal!!
Today he learnt that he has an overall HIGH DISTINCTION - meaning that he will probably graduate with Honours!!! Not bad for a 42 yr old ex bank clerk, ex debt collector, ec orderly, ex nurse!! Words dont adequately express how proud I am of him and how in awe I am of what he has acheived!!! Anyone who knows me knows I am a bit of a sook for my family ....but tonight every time I look at this amazing man I have tears in my eyes!!! He truly is an extraordinary person and an inspiration for anyone looking at a life change!!
Congratulations fabulous man - I am SO SO SO lucky to have had you as my life partner!!! You seriously ROCK Dr Shane Kamphuis!!!!!
From a hopelessly proud wife!!!
I HAVE MOVED!
