Some of you might not know this, but this past Wednesday I had to have emergency surgery and had to have my gall bladder removed Wednesday evening. Iâ€™m better now and home, but still a little sore. I will be fine in a few days.
I what to share with you all about what I learned this past few days and that is I learned what a true friend was. I hadnâ€™t had one, before and I just wanted to share.
Many of you know that I photograph Tiffany Karns quite frequently. Over the past year we have become good friends. She is here in Nashville now and she asked me to pick her up from the airport on Tuesday night from a trip she made to Oregon. While we were eating, she noticed that I was not myself and asked what was wrong. Being the stupid male, I said it was just a stomach cramp that Iâ€™ve had since Sunday and I would be fine. She didnâ€™t buy it after I could barely walk and drove me to the emergency room where they diagnosed my gallstones. We were there for six hours till 3am. She even kept my spirits up by cracking jokes taking my mind off the pain while I was waiting for the doctor. Now she did make fun of me while I was heavily drugged, so I donâ€™t know what I said during that time or what she had me do. I just hope there arenâ€™t any shots of me in the small hospital gown on the web. She did have her camera phone with her.
The next day she drove me to the hospital to have the surgery. She not only stayed the entire time of the surgery, but she also contacted my family in FL to let them know I was aright and that everything would be fine. She even hung around to make sure everything was going to be ok.
Yesterday, she came to pick me up after I was released and even went to get me some groceries so I would have something to eat.
I have to say, I found out the meaning of a true friend this past week. She didnâ€™t have to do what she did or did she complain about it. She just kept asking if I was ok and did I need anything. I just want to let people know how great a person she is besides being a great model.
Thanks Tiffany! You are a true friend!
