I arrived at the ER a few weeks ago, experiencing sharp back pain, and was admitted to the hospital, suffering a massive heart attack. Testing showed a blocked artery so I was sent to the cath lab and prepped for a stent placement. It was in the cath lab that I met Jerome. He immediately calmed me down by explaining the surgery/procedure and took great care when prepping me. After my family left, Jerome took my hand and said, “this is the worst part right now, because I know you feel all alone; but I am right here with you, and so is God." I can't begin to explain how much hearing those words meant to me. Such a simple act of kindness, only lasting a few seconds, set my mind at ease and lifted my spirits. I knew I was in good hands. Thank you, Jerome!
