I never seen anything like it. Not in a textbook, not during residency. It was incredible. Body full of holes… trauma surgeons dream. I put turnakits on where I could, started tying up the arteries with my bare hands, but the bleeding was everywhere, stomach, chest… the best pressure I could think of was my own body. So, I … I layed there for two hours on top of him, just.. not moving, trying to keep that dam from bursting with my own, hands and knees, and elbows… Body… full of holes. But he never bled out."

Day 1: Favourite Quotes
“Someone who doesn’t care to cook or get out of bed when it’s not a work day. Someone who sleeps so soundly and peacefully that I have to check her pulse sometimes. Someone who has suffered, and understands suffering to the point that I don’t have to say a word, I just look at her…and she sees who I am, and how I feel, and accepts it, doesn’t try to change it, and doesn’t want to change it. That person. And there’s a billion people out there, but I imagine there’s only one of her.”
