I wanted to take the time out of my busy day to write you a letter. You see, I really need to thank you for the wonderful start to my day today! I sprang forth from my bed, chipper and alert, at 5:15 this morning. I smiled as I drove 45 minutes to the office & got excited (really!) as I was called in for my appointment right at 7AM. But it was really too, too generous of you to ask me to sit in there (naked from the waist down, mind you) with no magazines or television for forty minutes before you came in, entertained only by the sound of the ultrasound gel warmer clicking on and off (and on and off, and on and off) over and over again.
But you just didn't feel that was enough to express your appreciation for the tens of thousands of dollars I've spent at your office, did you? No...of course not. So when you sweetly asked where we were in our search for a donor, I told you we were still looking. To which you replied, "Oh, where are you on the waiting list?" Of course I told you that we're not on a waiting list, we're trying to procure our own donor. And you so nicely told me, "Oh, no! You don't want to do that! Definitely go anonymous! That's the only way to go!" Thanks for reminding me that you make a doctor's salary and, if you ever needed to, you could make a decision like that so easily, without having to think about financial constraints.
Finally, after the hour spent in your office (for a 5 minute ultrasound & 2 minute bloodwork), I am so glad that I got to spend 50 minutes (while rushing back to work) in the car reflecting on my wonderful experience at your office today. I am so happy that I only had 5 minutes to prep my classroom for our Valentine's Day party before the kids came in...I mean, who needs to be overly prepared for three-year-olds anyway?
Thank you again for everything today.
