Day 4 starts early and quickly settles into a rhythm.  In the ward, the recuperation of yesterday’s patients is carefully monitored prior to their discharge. Tomorrow’s patients will soon arrive to take their places in the ward.  Meanwhile, today’s patients are taken to the OR throughout the day. The ward atmosphere today seems more relaxed and optimistic, as families are reassured by seeing the successful results of those who went before them.
