I've must admit, I've been keeping a secret from you guys.
Shortly after Izzy got back, she got some great news. A recent premed graduate, she was notified by mail that been accepted to not just one or two but ALL THREE of the medical schools she applied to...which meant that our days as partners were numbered. She started at the beginning of the semester, and after speaking to her recently, she is having a ball, kicking ass, and to me sounds like she is already on the way to being a great doc.
It breaks my heart a little to see her leave. She and I and been through some rough calls together and you don't spend a third of your life in a cramped ambulance cab without getting close to someone.
In her own words, "it wasn't all rainbows and skittles. Although we did have our fair share of fun".
Truthfully? It's just weird not having her as my partner. Behind every good Paramedic is a great Basic, and I didn't know what the meant till I started working with her. Now that she's gone I realize what I'm missing.
She's the best partner I've ever had.
I won't go any further than that, other then to say...
Good Luck, Kid. Knock 'em Dead.
