Thank you, I’ll be eternally grateful for you and your technical skills.
“When we first [met], you told me all about the pro’s and con’s of my proposed back surgery, and I told you I wanted 3 things: 1. I wanted to continue to backpack 2. Carry 30lbs, i.e. my backpack and 3. To still be able to snow ski. You assured me that I would be able to continue to do those things following my surgery.
During the summer of 2015, I started having pain down my legs and was diagnosed as having stenosis, a degenerated disc, and numerous other back and spine issues, which you ended up correcting for me.
A little over a year following my back surgery, I once again decided to complete my hike. […] During this portion of the hike I completed an additional 135 miles, had a total elevation gain of 27,936’ and elevation loss of 20,270’.
All in all, I couldn’t have done it without you and your skill as a surgeon. Thank you, I’ll be eternally grateful for you and your technical skills.”
