The way it is…


The Way It Is


The door opened only 8”-
couldn’t fit through.
An angel from his car helped me:
“If you push it a little, it’ll open more
I’ll help you if you want”

The receptionist took my info
I had 8 blood tests to take
This angel reminded me to take my prescriptions with me
for the phlebotomist.

Had to pee for one test of blood sugar.
Squeezed it out.
An angel showed me where to leave the sample.
All these details are
angel led.
winged guidance!

An angel woke me at 6AM.
Another guided my driving to the clinic.
A third found a parking spot.
The fourth held my hand to the elevator and
The fifth made sure I had my prescriptions.
The sixth was the trainee who learned to feel for my veins.

That’s the way it is: six angels strong!
That’s the way it is!



Went to Albany Med for a biopsy.
Lost in the Infinite Hallways.
Chaplin befriends me on the elevator.
Holds my hand for 30 minutes on the way to Radiology.
Forgot the paper script.
They found me electronically.
Soul found home.
Thyroid found needle.
Ears heard doctor.
Heart found hope.
Angels held me fast
As always.
