    I want to thank each and everyone of my ptentias for all the support and prayers you have given me through this difficult time in my life. I certainly didn’t need another challenge in my life. The world is made up of people in far worse shape and condition than me so I am very grateful for the wonderful life I have and will continue to have. All my ptentias in the practice were very special to me and I enjoyed not only the work but the relationships. I loved coming to work everyday. I believe that sometimes it’s best to leave at the top of your game. Not the way I wanted to go out, but sometimes you don’t get a choice. I am very proud of the team, (they are the best) and with Dr. Ghatnekar, I feel relieved that everyone is in good hands. It’s early but it appears all the sarcoma is removed. I still can’t believe it grew from 4cm to 15cm in a month. Treatment will probably a couple of weeks for recovery and then who knows what, but it will be up at UCLA. In the future I hope to come into the office and see a few of you from time to time just for a hug!! Thanks, again for all your kindness and understanding for all these years. I will treasure that part of my life. You all are forever in my heart.
