A Personal Message Of Thanks This Christmas
Much has happened to me the last few months and I would like to take a minute to thank just a few of the many people that have helped me in this time. First, the trip to the Stone Mountain Games was a highlight and I would like to thank all of the folks that made that possible. Particularly, I would like to thank the medical staff at Shepherd Center including Dr. Bowman, my neurologist, my nurse, Deisha, my occupational therapist, Jenn and especially my Health Tech, John Turner. John, you looked splendid in my Saltire Kilt.
After spending over two months at the VA in Augusta, GA, I am now here at the VA facility in Memphis, TN. During my stay in Augusta, I received excellent care and would like to thank the very wonderful people who helped me with my rehabilitation. These include my case doctor, Dr. Lorch, Pam Snowdy, my physician’s assistant, my OT, Stephanie, and my other therapists, Janelle, Ashley and Julie, and Dr. Lee who not only attended to my medical needs but was also my entertainment coordinator. It was Dr. Lee that arranged for my night with the Irish Fiddler, Kevin Burke, and the Kirking of the Tartans at the Presbyterian Church. I would also like to thank the Nursing Staff of the Spinal Unit and in particular Hector Gonzales.
And finally, I would like to thank all of you that have supported me with your prayers and cards and I want to wish for everyone a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with peace, love and good health.
