Favorite hospital memory: My favorite hospital memory is from the first vet hospital I ever worked at. The doctor I was assigned to asked if I'd be interested in monitoring his surgery. I said yes, but that I was nervous, and he was very reassuring by talking me through every step during the whole surgery. From "what" and "why" I was monitoring, to what he was doing, he showed me why I was going to love my job.
