After Heart Surgery, Lee Feels Very Grateful!

By Adam Pick on October 2, 2020

When I see a patient picture like this come across my community newsfeed, I stop what I’m doing.

No joke.

Thanks to Lee’s wonderful photo – taken just before she was discharged from the hospital – the corner of my lips turned up and a fantastic smile stretched across my face. Today instantly fills with happiness.

In her post this morning, Lee writes, “Feeling very grateful today, my list of gratitude is so long.”
