We think back to God performing the first surgery and first anesthesia, then listen to a powerful analogy about how Natural Selection is thought of today and learn about alligators. Plus, we get to hear our first bit of audio feedback!

Why put Adam into a “deep sleep”? I caught a glimpse of this Nursing Times article Understanding the Physiological Effects of Unrelieved Pain and it is full of big words describing the stress pain itself causes.

There is also a fascinating website for the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology.

It is a very nice thing to live in a day when we are doing our best to imitate God and care for the comfort of those of us when need bodily help!
