For four and half hours, Lauren (my photo editor), Julie (the writer) and I followed Dr Guzman around the Emergency Room at Cook's Children Hospital. It's an interesting dance you do when you're trying to be both in the action and out of the way. Dr Guzman has an inherently easy manner, perhaps the result of his many years performing his tough job. He delivers good news with the same grace he delivers not-so-good news, a talent that would be an asset in any occupation. He was also a very good sport, and used his talent time and time again to make me feel like I was not constantly in the way.
