... the gross factor. I actually found everything Dr. Peter said really interesting and felt like I was in a real-life CSI episode. It was my first experience seeing organs first-hand and I found out that I can handle it without a problem. After the autopsy, I stopped by the injection room and said a quick hello to Pauline and Esther before heading home for the day.


I only have three days left to volunteer in the hospital and I am determined to make the most of them! ...

I bought some souvenirs of course! I think I am going ...

... I came home at 8:30 for a couple of hours, went in for a couple of hours, came home at 2am for a couple of hours, coded a 16 year old boy for an hour (he died) at 4am, came back at 6:45 for another patient who died, and then at 7:15am had to sit down with three different families, including the mother of the 16 year old, to tell them their loved one had died.
