Here is a 1 min. and 44 sec. video clip from Amanda's pre-op appointment July 9, 2008.
Faithful readers may remember that this was the day we spent 3 1/2 hours finalizing everything for Amanda's CI surgery to discover that our van had been towed. (See post dated Thursday, July 10, 2008 Amanda's Surgery is Scheduled!)
This clip was taken right before I got downright silly insisting that I was getting a cochlear implant and not Amanda so that I would get the monkey. (See post dated Sunday, July 13, 2008 A Little "Monkey" Business.)
I post this clip to show our FABULOUS no hair cutting, dissolvable stitch using, monkey tracking downing ENT surgeon, Dr. Frederic DiTirro. Everyone would be fortunate to have a surgeon such as Dr. DiTirro!
We appreciate Dr. DiTirro more than we can put into words. But if we had to narrow it down to several words, they would have to include SENSITIVITY, SINCERITY and COMPASSION.
Enjoy the video clip.
