“There’s no better gift you can give someone than saying you’ve saved the person they love. I look forward to those moments. Unfortunately, those perfect outcomes are rare. You would think it gets easier, but it doesn’t. Each one hurts just as much as the last one. So we hope for the best, and prepare for the worst, because the worst has a nasty way of finding you.” #GreysAnatomy
