My test results finally came back and they were positive.  I had bet the house that would NOT be the results.  Within the last 4 weeks I’d been to 3 Supermarkets (2 times fully geared) and an Assisted Living Facility.

However, that is not the point of this letter.  As many of us, I am on information overload and trying to understand what is best to do, and not to do now.  Personally, I am sticking with the CDC and the World Health Organization.  Because of that I have currently stopped taking any ibuprofen although it helps other ailments and injuries.  I will only take Tylenol.

The challenge?  Find Extra Strength Tylenol.  Yes, you can find it online….to be delivered by the end of April…or May….but I need it now to reduce my fever.  What does one do?  Called my Primary Care Physician? My Internist?  My Orthopedic Doctor?  Anyone who could direct me somewhere but no luck.

However, then I thought of someone who has always helped me in the past.  Dr. Jeff Frankel, DMD, located in Randolph NJ.  I could scarcely get the words of my predicament out of my mouth when he said “address?  I’ll drop what I can in a bag on your doorstep.”

Speechless is hardly enough to describe my feelings.  He has a wife, 3 children, a dental practice, parents, etc. and he STOPPED what he was doing to help a person who was suffering.  We need more selfless acts like these to brave this new world. 

I hope we all share more uplifting stories like this one.

Thank you again Dr. Frankel.  You are a shining example to all for today and days to come.
