After struggling through the first week of finding someone in Mill Valley who could speak Spanish so I could talk to the doctor in Tarapoto, then flying down to Lima and spending an anxious 4 days visiting Will in the UCI (ICU), I had the choice of going back or staying on another week. I needed a miracle.
I didn’t know what to do and literally prayed for help. My prayers were answered when I was contacted from a Facebook group of ex-pat Brits in Lima and arranged to meet a half Scottish/half Peruvian woman who said she might be able to help. And that meeting created a lifelong bond between Will and his guardian angel.
Today, I want to honor Denise Crisanto Clark, who became Will’s guardian angel and daily visitor a year ago this day. She is deserving of our special recognition after dedicating herself to being by his side day after day, on our behalf, for 10 months until she delivered him safely back to England.
Denise has the biggest heart, tireless positive energy, incredible generosity and a deep belief in the power of the human spirit and I believe Will is only here because of her love and encouragement.
Thank you Denise. My deepest respect to you, for all that you did.
Remember that it’s Will’s 60th birthday this Thursday, April 13th. Helena Dennison and her daughter Andrea will be taking in a cake at 2pm to share with him and the nurses on the Tilgate Ward so please come and join them. I know he will love seeing you and realizing it’s his big day.
And if you are asking for a little help with a few miracles yourself, just ask. “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
