eye surgery

Yesterday I was able to go into the OR and observe a few eye surgery's. I was able to watch Dr. Russ in action! It was amazing to watch the skill and precision involved in surgery. The eye is so small and delicate.

Sometimes, being on the ward, I can forget how many people it takes to make Mercy Ships work. I forget that there are so many different types of people, with different complex skills and abilities, that are always functioning together.

It really makes me appreciate the work that is done here and the people that do it.
And I'm pretty lucky that I get to physically love on the patients (particularly the ridiculously beautiful children :)
