a day when we say to ourselves, "Yes, everything is flowing, yes,
everything is changing." Both, we ourselves and the circumstances around
us! We are not the same, we are a bit wiser, some of us - with silver in their hair,
but still keeping their spirit and wonderful memories of the life spent in this
dignified and reputable medical establishment. We would like to thank to every
one of you for your dedication and self-accomplishment. Thank you for what you
