Happy National Doctor's Day Dr. Reed !!!
We have been together for over 25 yrs! I don't think I could have made it this far without you & your extremely gifted medical knowledge along with your love, kindness,patience & determination to find answers to the medical & personal problems I have endured during these years. I have written this letter many times but there just isn't enough space to say all the feelings of appreciation & thankfulness I have for your care. I truly believe God puts people in our lives that are needed to see us through our lives. You always go the extra mile for everyone. You know my story as well as I do & you have gotten me through so many rough times. We have been through many ups & downs together. You helped me through a divorce, hard times with my children when they were acting out, watched & encouraged me as I struggled as a single Mom while working as a nurse 70 to 80 hrs a week trying to keep my family going. You kept me going with health issues helping me stay strong to keep going. I was in a terrible car accident yrs ago & you got me through that episode along with the everyday health issues we all experience. Now I am an "elderly" person,supposedly, and fighting a health crisis that I can't believe I am experiencing. 7 1/2 yrs ago I was Septic & almost lost my life. 30 day hospital stay you got me through with home health,seeing me very often,trying to help me get better. I just kept spiraling down. Finally after tests & specialists we found my colon was dead. The colon was removed & I continued with complications. you never gave up! It was shortly after that you went with MDVIP. It scared me to death thinking I would lose you! I think I was the 1st to sign up so afraid I wouldn't make the cut. It was a great decision for you & I am so happy you were able to cut back. It has been great for me,although I didn't know how it would work out it has been another Blessing for us both. I am embarrassed @ the # of times I come in or call with my health issues,but you are always patient & kind.I feel part of your family,that's how welcoming you are with your beautiful smile. although I am still fighting this battle after the complication of a blockage & another surgery you got me through. with my digestive issues you took it upon yourself to study many diets & foods to find some foods I could tolerate.Again you were successfull. I thank God for you everyday when I count my Blessings. I hope & pray you will continue to help me through this journey. Thank you again for all your help & guidance. I truly don't know what I would do without you. Sincerely & with love I wish you the best in your personal & professional life. I will probably see you tomorrow! LOL!!!
