Miracles of Modern Medicine

Miracles of modern medicine disguise mysteries I have seen incredible advancement over years, Hospital stays are not extended following surgeries Success and survival statistics now allay most fears. Doctors are up on the latest surgical technology Focusing on their particular specialties as experts, I could not begin to understand first year biology I’m just so happy when they can cure my hurts! My vascular surgeon, born and raised in Lebanon, Is tops in his field and has the most advanced skills, When it comes to bedside manner, he’s a paragon And he’s never even added to my routine more pills! With carotid surgery, I thought I’d be laid up a week That’s how long it took many years ago for the same I was kept only overnight, it seemed merely a tweak But I’m still having trouble pronouncing his name.

Oh, he does. He really does. He's not only the best surgeon I know of, but he's a real friend.

As long as they are good doctors, I don't care where they came from, Rico.

So glad to hear you are well and up after your op. I pray that perhaps you will avoid the second one on the left. Wonderful that technology has advanced so, I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago and instead of having a massive cut and a two and a half hour op. took half an hour using laser surgery and what took a week in hospital to recover I got to leave two days later. hugs, blessings. Jennifer.

Thank you so much, Jennifer, and I'm happy that your surgery went all right, as well. Nope, don't spend much time in a hospital these days. I think it is a good thing.

And of course with new discoveries in medicine we're living longer and healthier, how we've come on since the snake oil men. Tom PS, hope you are well on the road to recovery.

I'm feeling much, much better this afternoon. Yesterday was wearing, but I got through it. I slept very well last night, too.

I feel your pain on pronouncing the name. Happy to hear you are recovered quickly and back to writing. Stay well.

Thank you so much, Kenneth. I hope I'll never have to go through carotid surgery again, but Dr. Khoudoud reminded me that I have another one on the left side!
