First day of surgery. Everyone was a bit nervous to see how things would go. Of course, everything went very well. There was so much support and love by everyone to make sure that the medical teams had the equipment they needed. There were a few glitches that were quickly resolved, and the day went very well. We had one event in postoperative care when a patient experienced breathing difficulty. The team responded quickly and resolved the issue. One of the nurses involved told us how when she leaned over the patient, the cross that she was wearing around her neck fell onto the patients chest at the same moment that the patient revived. It is moments like this that make us realize how important our faith is in the work we do.
