The love of a Surgeon
This is my favourite photo from Tim's trip to China.
Faith and knowledge lean largely upon each other in the practice of medicine. ~Peter Mere Latham
Tim isn't in this photo, but I love the compassion and care that is shown here by the surgeon and the nurse to this severely burnt baby.
Never did I think that I would marry a surgeon. It hasn't always been easy and it has been a long road to get to this point in our lives... but I am thankful everyday that I am married to such a skilled man.
We all have purpose in life and I knew very early in our marriage that Tim would go far. I knew that someday he would serve in this way. I knew in Medical School that he would end up doing Plastic Surgery. I knew in residency that he would end up doing burns. I knew that he would do mission work.
You can see that this team has a lot of fun together. Playing with the silly Chinese OR hats.
Surgeons must be very careful
When they take the knife!
Underneath their fine incisions
Stirs the Culprit - Life!
Even though they see such horrific things on these trips, the people are simply grateful... and I think that makes it all worth while.
