Less than a month after surgery – Patient Update

Sometimes we don’t hear from our patients, but from their family members, as they are so happy to have their spouse, parent, sibling doing well after surgery. The following letter we received from a son, happy to see his dad able to carry out his work, which takes place in a remote location in Northern Saskatchewan.

“Here’s my crazy dad, Jim, 29 days after surgery. He stared flying yesterday. He has made 6 return trips 60 miles North to two of our most Northern fly in outpost camps to “put up” ice. They cut blocks of ice from the frozen lake and store them in a log shack and cover them with sawdust. The frozen blocks will stay frozen until October. The fisherman use the blocks of ice to cool their fish and refreshments. The ice is still 36-48″ thick. We expect it will be melted within 10 days so he was cutting it pretty close. Thank you again for your  great work. It’s great seeing him not in pain anymore.”
