This week Hannah and I visited Red Fort, the ruins of the last
Mughal emperor’s palace. From the outside, all you can see is giant
walls of rusty red stone, but inside, the courtyard was filled with
building made of white stone and elaborately detailed with carving of
fruits and flowers. Some of the carvings even used colored stones placed
into the walls as the petals and leaves of different plants. In between
the buildings were wide lawns punctuated by trees and what clearly were
once pools and water features, though now no water fills them.
I spent my first couple days in the hospital just watching
surgeries because I didn't know what department I wanted to see first,
plus that seemed most exciting! My first surgery was a lobectomy sleeve
resection, performed in a 63 year old man who had a tumor obstructing
his intermediate bronchi. So to get rid of the tumour completely, they
removed the upper lobe of his left lung, hence the lobectomy.
