What more can I say than “Thank you, once again!” I had to smile when last week I thought, I’m too old for this, and then realized that most people are probably only just starting their journey at this age. In my case, I feel like you’ve watched me “grow up” through the years, and you have always been there when I needed you. By now, you must realize that I would NEVER let another doctor touch my spine! I feel incredibly blessed to have gotten so much relief from each and every surgery, and I don’t take that lightly! I’ve always understood the importance of going into these surgeries with a positive mental fortitude. I know that 22 years ago, when I first walked into your office that I picked the best there is! And thank goodness for that, because who would have ever thought that I would be back so many times. I can’t dwell on the past and wonder why, because I think so much of life’s circumstances defy explanation. I like your comment that “life is dynamic”. I know that there is still much healing to take place, but the results have been so remarkable! There has even been a wonderful surprise that I was not expecting. When my husband wraps his arms around me, his arm crosses the uppermost part of mine. For years, I would wince at the pain that I felt with pressure on the left side. I always assumed it was associated with my broken arm. I’ve sprained everything imaginable, but waited until I was 50 years old to chase a puppy around the house, slip on a wet spot in the kitchen and go down so hard as to separate and break my arm/shoulder. I just assumed the pain was associated with that injury. Well, the first time he wrapped his arms around me after surgery, I didn’t feel any pain. What a sweet and precious gift!!!!! I look forward to seeing you on a more casual basis at Tulane sporting events and I thank you with all of my heart for the most treasured gift of an overwhelmingly enhanced quality of life! – Elizabeth
