She also had her blood test today, to check the levels of digoxin in her blood and make sure that it is not at a toxic level. As soon as she saw the white coat, she started screaming hysterically. The poor guy was so stunned, but I explained that she has a fear of white coats. He nodded his head knowingly, and said, "Oh, she must have had a blood test before." I didn't even bother responding, I just pulled Tehilla's shirt down low, so he could see her scar. His eyes popped and he said, "Oh, wow. Okay, I'll move quickly."
I was sent a wonderful picture from my brother, who was stunned to see this on the Yeshiva University campus, today.
Again, this is such a beautiful initiative and my family is so moved by Rabbi Gopin's "No Talking for Tehilla" campaign.
