Angels Are Beside Me!

~ Joyce Fields

Today (December 14), I had a follow-up visit with my Breast Surgeon, Dr. Dawn Hills.

I decided to take her a box of chocolate-covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements—just a small token of my appreciation for the fact that she cut that monster out of me!  I am soooo grateful!!

And, I decided to take her assistant, Rebecca, a small fruit salad—strawberries, grapes, cantaloupe, honey dew, and pineapple.

When I arrived and went to sign in, Rebecca was on the phone, so I sat her gift on her desk where she could see it.  She looked excited and mouthed, “Thank you!”

A few minutes later, Rebecca was still on the phone, and I was called in to prepare to see Dr. Hills.  My vital signs were very good:  oxygen was 96%; temperature was 98.4; blood pressure was 110/67; weight was. . .well. . . ummm. . .let’s just say I could stand to lose about 15 pounds!

Dr. Hills knocked and entered the room.  We greeted each other warmly, and I presented her with her gift.  Great choice!  She said she loves chocolate-covered strawberries!

She examined me and told me that I’m coming along very well.  And I told her that I felt fantastic—as I always have!  She wants to see me every three months for a while, then every four months for a while, then every six months.

I got dressed and returned to Rebecca’s station.  She was off the phone, happily thanked me again, and proceeded to tell me the following story:

Shortly before I arrived, she and her co-worker, Cecily, were discussing their love for fresh cherries.  Unbelievably, Cecily had never tasted fresh cherries until she was 19 years old!  Rebecca told Cecily that all that talk of cherries made her hungry for some fresh fruit.

A few minutes later, I walked in and put the Edible Arrangements bag on her desk.  Since she was on the phone, she didn’t know what was in it.  She looked while I was in with Dr. Hills.  And what did she find?  A FRESH FRUIT SALAD!!!

ObviousIy, I had no idea, no clue that she would be craving fresh fruit!

Were angels leading me, or what?!!  I think so.

And angels were looking out for Rebecca, too!!
