The article relates a story surrounding a photograph displayed at the office desk of a surgeon. The photograph depicts the surgeon's daughters in their pajamas sitting on a bed holding a telephone. The photograph is extremely important to the surgeon that it has not left his desk for nearly a decade. This picture has convinced the surgeon to leave the practice for one that allowed him to be home most evenings with his daughters.
