On Dec 21st, I took my abdomen registry again.  I had been studying for a few weeks, but Marshall told me to only focus on my exam the week before I took it.  I literally did nothing but study.  Didn't cook or clean, blog, etc.  I was so nervous as I barely didn't pass it last time.  I knew a lot more of the content on the exam this time around and felt pretty good coming out of it.  I did so much better and passed with flying colors!  I wasn't sure if I should scream for joy or cry.  It was absolutely amazing.  It's so nice to finally be registered and I'm wanting to take another registry in a few months, probably OB/GYN.  I need some time for me though, to just NOT study.  Along with passing my registry came a nice $6 an hour raise.  I'm making almost 3 times more than what I was working as a health unit coordinator doing clerical work, which is what I was doing only 1 year ago.  It's nice to have a job that I love, but that pays incredibly well too.  Ultrasound school was definitely one of the most challenging things I've done in my life, but it's been so worth it.
