I Had Forgotten What It Was Like To Walk and Stand Straight
Dear Dr. Leone,
I want to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation. When I first came to your office, I was in severe pain and feeling depressed. You immediately gave me hope.
I was extremely anxious about the surgeries especially since I needed a bilateral hip replacement surgery. You and the entire Holy Cross staff helped me to feel safe and secure throughout the whole process.
Before my surgeries I was walking with a walker. I couldn’t exercise and that was affecting my overall health. The pain was nonstop and I walked with a distinctive limp. I couldn’t even put my feet together!
Today, I am a different person! It has changed my life. I am back to walking 5K’s, dancing and most of all just getting through a full day teaching on my feet.
I used to have to sit at my desk most of the day. Now I can interact with my students more freely. I sleep better and I am able to work out more which has enhanced my mental and physical health. I had forgotten what it was like to walk and stand straight.
I just want to thank you and everyone involved in my surgeries and recovery. I can’t express enough how grateful I am for this gift.
God bless, Donna Parise
