Dear Dr. Foster:
I don’t know how I can fully express how truly appreciative and grateful I am of your unfailing care at all hours of the day and night, your compassion, incisiveness and expertise… while helping save my life more than once by my count.
That terrifying Friday I stumbled into your office a bloody mess, you calmly and with great skill and composure stopped my bleeding…. While assuring me you’d be there for me. YOU WERE INDEED. And when in the wee hours the hospital staff became overwhelmed by my dire situation and I began losing hope. I will never forget that very moment when you emerged (like the Wizard of Oz! or Cavalry!) To help save the day (and my life!) again. When I saw your face my spirit was immediately buoyed. I knew I’d make it. When it was time to make the crucial decision on the procedure that eventually stopped my hemorrhaging once and for all you again came through. I am also extremely grateful to Dr. Kupferberg as well – without either of you I wouldn’t have made it to see my next birthday (January). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your care and for going above the call of duty… my family also appreciated your professional and personal courtesy as well. With great admiration and affection,
