THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING TALENT IN THE OPERATING ROOM…
Dr. La Via,
With the somewhat somber tone I have been in during the last week, I thought we could both use a chuckle from this happy horse.
What you have done for me is difficult to parse down into mere words… In this case, it is not that I am thanking an incredible doctor for *changing* my life. Rather I thank you from my deepest Heart, that due to your expertise and skill as a surgeon, you have enabled my life *not to change*. I will still remain the same _____, rather than a new marred _______. And though I know you would have done remarkable work no matter how drastic it could have gone, for which I would have felt eternally grateful, I want you to know that the wonderful surgery you performed has positively impacted my life indefinitely. It could have turned out in a myriad of other ways, but it turned out for the BEST, with a result that I am pleased with. Very much so!
And I know that the outcome has everything to do with your efforts!! For this I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL. Thank you Dr. La Via
