OK, so by now Grad, you have gotten through the first day! Tell us how did it go? (I understand about the older part; I did the same)

I survived..everyone was so nice. My preceptor was very low key and we had 4 pretty easy patients. I got all blank paperwork to take home so I can play with it and don't go back till Tuesday. Love that!

And i didn't have to take anymore Imodium!!
