How to say thanks

When I see the doctor who performed Stacy's kidney transplant I use this universal sign. He's a remarkable man from Nigeria who has gorgeous intelligent eyes and a smile that lights up the room and instantly calmed me when I was near hysterics after arriving at Loma Linda hospital. We were met by a transplant team of seven who surrounded Stacy's hospital bed and pelted me with questions that raised my anxiety to such a high level I nearly grabbed Stacy up and made a run for it! Dr. O simply patted everyone on the shoulder and took charge; his arm was around my quivering shoulders when he said, "It'll be okay." And so it was.

Thanks to Nancy Neva for emailing me this link to Georgia O'keeffe videos.
