I’m about two months out from surgery now, and the world has a different color. In fact, there are colors, which didn’t seem to be true before you did the procedure.

I just came back from a 30-minute walk with my wife. Then I went to the exercise bike and did another twenty minutes. Now, i’m sitting still and writing a letter.

None of this could have been done before you operated. I add to that that I am just about free of pain. I’m 73 and have arthritis in every bone, so I won’t be scheduling any triathlons.

I can do things with my wife; I can do things with my life.

I can only say thank you and your staff for the brilliant work.
