Having seen you in the Hawthorne office just two weeks ago, I must apologize for this (too-long) delayed note of thanks. At this time of that appointment, I was so distracted in my struggle to understand an article on hormesis in the magazine scientific I had picked up in the reception area, that I was totally unfocused during our short conversation after you came into the examining room, and only later realized I had been remiss. When you asked me how I as doing after my November 2014 hip replacement surgery, I failed to allegedly tell you that it had changed my life in all the most positive ways and actually returned me not only to my easier “normal” activity and serves of well-being, but had given me a renewed sense of worth and energized determination to make a greater contribution to improving others life as well. As I’m sure you know, being incapacitated- even to a degree- affects ones mental state and emotional health as well, and I’m so deeply grateful to now be well and “able” again. Thank you for returning my life to me and for making me so much more empathetic as well.
