On June 20th had surgery to remove bone spur and callus. This surgery should have been done years ago. The nursing staff probably recognized that I was a nervous wreck. They were there to assure me everything was going to go well. Brent said he wouldn’t let anything happen to me and I felt that he wouldn’t. He introduced me to everyone on the surgical team. The chaplain, doctors and nurses let me call them by their first names so I would feel more comfortable. I’m doing well and waiting for stitches to be removed.
