Thanks for Helping to Take My Pain Away

[EXCERPT] Thanks to Dr. Matt for many things: for being patient and answering all my questions, for being genuinely concerned about how I’m feeling each day, for making me comfortable with an unfamiliar process, for giving me mmuch needed pep talks when I’m feeling discouraged, and for celebrating with me when I’m feeling better. Most of all, thanks for helping to take my pain away, or at least to lessen it considerably. I have confidence that, eventually, I’ll be as “good as new.”
