Making a difference
Yesterday actually involved a transfer that felt like we were really making a difference in someone's life. We took a young child to Boston for a kidney transplant. Apparently they'd gotten the call for an available matched organ, so off we went lights and sirens. The family spoke hardly any english, so my few words of spanish were actually helpful. The staff on the unit were so excited to see the kid and the family, it really left a good feeling for the rest of the day.
