Visiting Sloan Kettering - The Gray Envelope

Tomorrow is the big day for my procedure.  I visited Sloan Kettering last week for my pre admission testing.  They give you a big gray envelope to put all of your paperwork into.  It is sitting on my desk,but I don't think i need to open it as I have it memorized.  Next time I am there I am going to look for people with gray envelopes and send them lovingkindness and prayers.

One of the things that you are supposed to do before surgery is use a special soap.  It is available in their gift shop.  As we were leaving, Jim and I both forgot about it and took the elevator down to the 1st floor.  It dawned on me that we forgot it and I said "let's hop back on the elevator and ride back up and get some".  So we did.

What a coincidence, chance but not.  As we re boarded the elevator I looked around and there was Kathy DiFiore, founder of Several Sources Foundations an saver of thousands of children.  It was really a nice little miracle to see a familiar face.  She was there for some follow-up and it was amazing to see her.  It made me feel so much better that she was there!  It felt as if all of those little babies were right there with us. 

Please send Kathy some of that love too!
