I sighed on seeing the candle she lit in the chapel while her beloved was with the doctor, alone. I know zillions—the list is too long—who are the Ones for their other halves. Surgeries, ICU stays, a straight-forward (as they say) procedure must be born on the outside of the four walls. Blessings on the healers who shepherd our dear Ones through and return them to us in one piece. For now.
