A great way to say; "thank you", A Gift of Poetry
is an excellent way of expressing your
innermost thoughts and feelings.
(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. Barbi and Kevin wanted something special for their doctor. Barbi has kindly given her permission for her poem and story to be published)
My Saintly Doctor
What is your name: Barbi and Kevin Gyda
What are the key
messages you would like to send: A VERY, VERY heartfelt thank you.
Do you have any
funny, sad, happy, embarrassing or otherwise memorable moments that you
would like to share: I have to begin by telling you a little about
our story. I have gone to Dr. Krauss for many years now. Over 6 years
ago I became pregnant with twin girls. Dr. Krauss kept a close eye on me
and made sure that I was well taken care of. At about 18 weeks we found
out that our twins had twin to twin transfusion syndrome (a condition
where the twins share a placenta and one twin gets more blood, oxygen, and
nutrients than the other). Dr. Krauss had us go to various specialists
but also made sure that he still took very good care of us. At around 22
1/2 weeks into the pregnancy, one of our girls died and that sent me into
labor. Dr. Krauss made sure that he was there for the delivery of our
twins. Dr. Krauss was so very caring throughout everything. He shed
tears with us and was clearly so very upset. I don't think I have ever
seen a doctor so genuinely concerned and caring (and I happen to be an
RN). After everything had passed, I had miscarried again (a year after we
lost the twins). My husband and I had tried getting pregnant again...to
no avail. Then I became pregnant again in about a year. I miscarried
that baby too. Dr. Krauss was devastated along with us. He continued to
care so much about us. After about two years (and visits and talks with
Dr. Krauss) I had finally given up all hope that I would ever have any
more children. Dr. Krauss told me not to give up, but as I told him, I
had to for my sanity's sake. I ended up becoming pregnant again and Dr.
Krauss was there right by my side. He made sure that we took every
precaution not to lose this pregnancy and watched me very closely. Nine
months later, I delivered a very beautiful, healthy baby boy (Gary). He
was born on the 4th of July 2002. Although Dr. Krauss was not on call
that day, he came in to deliver our son. Dr. Krauss had out of town
family and friends over for the holiday festivities...but that didn't stop
him from going to the hospital and staying there for several hours. Once
again, Dr. Krauss came through...this time to share tears of joy.
Do you have any other comments or thoughts: I really don't know how to thank Dr. Krauss enough...I really would like to show our deep appreciation for him. I was originally going to get him a tie or gift basket, but then came across your site. I'm so happy that I did. I love the idea that this gift will be so very original.
which package you would prefer: Deluxe
Do you have any
last comments or thoughts: Thank you so much for offering this type
of service. If you have any questions or need to know more detail about
anything, please don't hesitate to email me. I will be more than happy to
provide you with more details if needed.
My Saintly Doctor
Some tides bring forth life,
and then other tides can take that life away,
then there are people who can walk on water,
and that line leaves so very much to say:
You see, Dr. Krauss, you truly are a miracle worker,
you have sheer magic in them there hands,
you have a heart that's too big for your chest,
you have an ear that gently understands.
But most importantly, and this is so apparent,
you can see that you genuinely care,
and when we think of all the saints in this world,
we think of you, just standing there.
You've been with us through it all,
and some of the lows were very low,
but it was your support and belief that got us through,
oh yes, there's a few other things that you should know.
When we lost the twins our dreams expired,
everything we'd hoped for, was suddenly gone,
for us, the world seemed so much darker,
there was no warmth where the sun had shone.
But life carried on (as it always does),
and we tried and then we tried again,
and as you know, we cried together,
for my sanity, I didn't want any more pain.
But you told me not to give up,
and that was just an inspirational thought,
because I know we wouldn't have what we have today,
they wouldn't have happened without your unwavering support.
You watched me very closely with Gary,
and when push come to shove, you were by my side,
and we know we couldn't have picked a finer doctor,
we know we couldn't - even if we'd tried.
And we cried tears of joy that day,
we'll never forget them streaming down your face,
and that could have been the end of this story,
but gladly, there was another time and another place.
Because less than two years later,
Christina wouldn't wait to land on this planet Earth,
and once again, you put everything else aside,
and we discovered what a saintly doctor is truly worth.
So many times, you've gone beyond the call of duty,
that's why you're the Top Doc in the Philadelphia Magazine,
your light is beautiful, it's brilliant, truly magnificent,
you're one of the finest doctors this world's ever seen.
And if your magnificence was a picture,
well, it would have been so difficult to paint,
how on Earth can we thank you for Gary and Christina,
how on Earth do you say: "Thank you, saint"?
