Today, I would like to share with you my personal collection of Saint Antoine’s statues. It all began a little more than two years ago, when I started to visit frequently the Saint Antoine hospital. I started to take photos of the statues each time I met one, on visiting churches or cathedrales. When possible, and following a well established tradition in the family, I lighted a candle too!
With time, everybody in the family and also friends became aware of my passion for this guy ;-)! This way, I received many more photos of him, either from France but also from abroad!
Of course, I will continue my quest for more statues. At some point, I will have to go to visit Padova and Saint Antoine’s grave there! (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Padoue).
But making jokes about Saint Antoine does not prevent me to remember that if I can make those jokes it is because of the wonderful people of the hematology department at Saint Antoine hospital: my kind personal graft doctor and the other doctors and nurses. I don’t forget the nurses/good friends of the photopheresis! Of course nothing would have been possible without my stem cells donor I will never know. And of my family and friends too! I love you all so much!
Take care and enjoy life!
