the gift of life.

today must have been my happiest day in medical school.

one of our young patients at NUH received news this morning that a donor kidney was available for transplant. she went in for the operation today.

as she was wheeled to the OT, i waved at her to take care and be brave. she raised her little hand and waved back.

and i thought that, god has sent her many gifts, despite her illness and suffering. courage, fortitude, and today, the biggest ever- the gift of a new life.

my heart melted today. please keep her safe...
