I remember in highschool I wanted to be some form of health professional, but I hadn't decided on anything permanently until the my first year at the University. A friend of mine, who was tough as nails, had training in the military, and was a provincal level track athlete, whom I spoke to on a regular basis at the time reached out to me. "I'm scared." He said. "about what?" I responded. "I'm going into surgery tomorrow." I was shocked, I had no knowledge of anything he required surgery for.
