Boy am I lucky!
I am lucky to work for the College of Allied Health Sciences at ECU. As some of you know, I broke my elbow and bruised my ribs last week; I had surgery on Wednesday to attach the bone that broke with a plate and screws. So, you may ask why do I feel lucky given that I just had surgery? I feel lucky to know that allied health professionals helped me with my diagnosis, tests, surgery and recovery. Before I worked for allied health, I had no idea that there’re so many disciplines involved in helping the patient recover. Working here, I have the privilege to meet face-to-face with many of these professionals and soon-to-be-professionals for advice as I recover. I can truly appreciate the various sciences that help a patient from injury to recovery, so here’s a big ‘thank you’ to all of you.
