There’s a chinese saying that goes “there’s never a party that never ends”.
And it’s a saying that I hate so much yet found much consolation from it.

This is my batch girl.
We entered theatre together, trained in general surgery together.
We had different preceptor.
When I’m in OR 7, she’ll be in OR 8.
And we’ll exchange tips & guides to each other’s theatre, or cases, or surgeons.

It was really hardship. We would console each other, complain about the seniors/surgeons to each other, and encourage each other.

And we only had each other to rely on.
Learning about the instruments, the operations, the surgeons’ preference, the arrangement of instruments, etc.

And then proceeding to become seniors. Having a lot of fun in the theatre, skiving together, talking all the time.

She’s a really good scrub nurse.
Really good.

Next week is her last week in Singapore.
She’s going back to China for good.

I’m so gonna miss her.
Can’t believe that I may never get to see her again, and this makes realize how I’ve been taking her presence for granted.

Such a great friend.
I’m so grateful to have her during my years in the theatre.
