So yesterday I had a mystery package arrive in the mail. I currently live in an apartment complex, and any relatively large packages are dropped off at the front office. My wife had picked it up last night and set it inside our apartment – it was addressed to me, but I didn’t recall ordering anything.

This morning, I finally opened it up. I figured that perhaps it was a book or something I had ordered and forgot about—as a fairly avid reader, this was not beyond the realm of possibility for me! I noticed that it was a bit light for a book, though. As I reached inside the box and pushed aside the packaging material, I was surprised to see a brand new 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope staring back up at me!
My first thought was, “Well, maybe it’s from the school?” But this was nice…probably too nice for the school to be sending out to students. Then I noticed that my name was engraved on it...and then I finally noticed the message included in the box, wishing me good luck in medical school from the doctors that I had worked with for two years as an emergency department scribe. Awww….

I had a great experience scribing with them, and this gift was greatly appreciated. I’m sure it will be put to good use.
