All Aboard!

Hello my friends! I haven't blogged in ages. I was just really busy on the ship and at the beach but now I'm finally home. So here's what I've been up to:

About 2 weeks ago the ship went underway for a while. I was a bit worried that I would get seasick but I was fine. Underway was pretty neat because we were able to stay late in medical and learn to draw blood and give IVs.
Drawing blood for the first time!

What happens when you mess up while giving an IV.
There were also a lot of great photo opportunities:

Back in port we kept exploring the ship and the base and we even got to visit Portsmouth Naval Hospital:

At the end it was really sad to leave everyone but hopefully we'll see each other in the fleet some day.
Thanks Medical!
Thanks to the best running mate: AC1 Gilmore!

All in all it was a really awesome trip and I can't wait to commission. Thank you to everyone who helped us learn and have fun!


  1. I am so proud of you Layne! SO cool. XOXO
