  •  Thank you, alicia! (11+ / 0-)

    I got a good kick in my sense of proportion yesterday.  I was waiting at the front desk to find out about authorizations when a family came in.  One of them, a man, came up to the desk, and the receptionist snarled at him and took his health insurance card off somewhere.  I leaned over and told him the desk staff was grumpy but the doctors were wonderful.

    He said he was glad of that.  His sister had brought her three-month-old son, who was blind, all the way from Pakistan for treatment.

    I have an eye that hurts, but sees, will see, even if not perfectly.  And these people are traveling the world for help for their blind little baby.  May they find it right away.

      I imagine your kind words to the man were very comforting...I hope they will find the help they need.  Goodness me, it's hard to know what others are going through.
