Cadaver Thoughts (last week or two of Anatomy)

We removed his brain today. The only thing I can imagine is like it is watching a baby be born. Emotional, amazing, scary, wonderful, supra-human.

I want to hold it! I want to love it. I want him to know it's going to be ok. God is so incredible.

This nerve between my fingers is how he could smell. This right here is how he saw the world for 83 years. This one gave him the ability to wiggle his tongue.

This was him. All of him. In my hands. I want to love it and hold it.

What an incredible honor. An intimacy beyond all intimacy.
