A message from Justin Buro, surgery resident at Stony Borok University Hospital.
From Justin Buro:
"My name is Justin Buro and I am one of the surgery residents currently assigned to working on the Covid-19 floors at Stony Brook University Hospital which is located just a short distance from New York City. For close to two months now I have been working the night shift at the hospital, for which many of us were told within less than 24 hours notice to report for. Many of us are serving in roles way beyond our capabilities and way outside of our chosen specialty. Despite being a surgical resident and pneumonia being very outside my specialty, I am working day and night to support my patients and fellow colleagues in battling this devastating pandemic. This is truly an unprecedented time with completely unanticipated effects on my relationship with family and friends. This has been an incredibly tough time and I have always been one who turns to music as a source of comfort and relaxation. Currently the new album Pink by Two Feet and Brol by Angèle has been an incredible source of calm and happiness for me and helps get me through the day."
My daughter is a front line worker who is sacrificing everything to serve the patients at her facility, it does however make our relationship very difficult to maintain as I am a cancer survivor with a very compromised immune system...
