Just wanted to respond to a couple of comments.
1. I had a heated discussion with the reporter about Holly. She seemed to want to blame her death on the procedure because, as a result of it, she was on Coumadin. I was so relieved that she did the right thing in the article.
2. I think that the "fly-by-night" comment by Dr. T was his way of warning us all to be very careful about who we let touch us. He is worried that doctors are going to see $$ in our veins, and not look out for our best interests.
I also believe that he is more enthusiastic than he lets on in the article. I understand that he had to put on his serious doctor hat for the press, though.
Ah yes, the feet. Dr. T showed her the before and after videos he took of my feet!
I have a friend in PR who said that this article will probably be in the Health sections of lots of major newspapers tomorrow. I didn't know that Tuesday is Health day in lots of papers. I just know about the Washington Post. Silly me; what do I know?
Thanks for all of your kind words!
(since the world now knows my name and where I live, gulp, I can certainly sign my post here!)
