7:11 am
station, sitting right by the and then i was by the nurse's station charting and i overheard the doctor mentioning his name over the phone, he said victor perazza. and when i heard his name, i froze. i knew my father's name. i knew his name was victor. and prior to that, it was my maiden name, so i completely froze and quickly looked to the chart to see if i could notice his age. and i said, if this patient happens to be in his 60s, more than likely there's a good chance he could be my dad because my mom married her high school sweetheart. and she's in her 60s. so of course, i like at the chart and the age wasn't there. and i didn't think to look at the age. the date of birth, rather, so i said at this point i just need to go into the patient's room and look at him because my mom
7:12 am
told me that i had a great resemblance. my dad and i resembled each other very much. >> then ultimately you figure out that it is, in fact, your father. and i think one of the most amazing things about the entire story is your father abandoned your family, yet here you are and you have basically forgiven him. how -- where is it in your heart that you see this man who is in your care, you realize he's your father, and you still open your heart to him? >> because that's the type of person i am. it is not in my nature to hold a grudge. i like peace. i like to make people happy. and i couldn't imagine my father being one of the patients that's been admitted to calvary hospital and just turning him away. i mean, here i am, i'm here 23 years and try to provide the best of care to my patients, and who would have ever thought that my dad was going to be one of
7:13 am
these patients. >> as it turns out, without family, he's there almost by himself. he's met you, he's met your children, he's met suddenly this man has a richness in terms of relationships he may have never had in his entire life. >> exactly. >> is this a blessing for you? >> total blessing. i feel blessed. i feel that this was a spirit full gift god gave me and god brought him to me. this is the way it was supposed to happen. it was fate. and it couldn't have happened any more perfect than it did. i owe god my life. i feel so -- there's closure. >> wow, what a story. what a story. wanda, thank you very, very much for coming on this morning. i think you have provided an inspace for a lot of people all over this country and it's a story a lot of people are sharing. thank you so much for sharing it with us this morning.

>> because you think, as that turns brown, i've got to get it out of there, but you can't because it takes ait's while for the chicken to cook. >> it does. two tips. if you have a lid, you put the lid on and that keeps the heat on the inside. as it browns it also cooks. if you don't have a lid, you can take it out when you like the color and you can put it on a rack on a sheet pan and finish it up in the oven. >> that's kind of the guaranteed way. sometimes we do that out on the grill, we'll bake the chicken first and then put it out, or vice versa. that's the way to go. >> nothing worse than biting into a great piece of fried chicken and it's not cooked all the way. >> that's just horrendous, right? >> i know this is cooked all the way. >> you know this is cooked. this looks really, really good. i got a question for you. >> okay. >> and you know, as good as fried chicken is, it's really good the second day, too, right? oh oh, my gosh. >> you can do this in the morning and take it to a picnic later this afternoon.
