Dr. Groya in LaGrange Park really is a nice man and an excellent surgeon. I'm thrilled with how my new knee feels and will have the other one done in April. In addition to Dr. Groya's surgical skills, the referral women at my doctors' office sing the praises of his support staff. And they are right. His nurse, his receptionist, his bookkeeper/jack-of-all-trades, and x-ray technician are terrific women. Call it gratitude - or medical bribery - but I made each of them a quilted tote. Just because. Today at my appointment I gave them their bags, and each woman was appreciative. Fun to reward people for good work! and to ask them for attention for future work (wink, wink, nudge,nudge!).
Before my first knee replacement, I was closing up the studio for a couple of weeks and made a tote out of all my scraps for my surgeon's wife. I told Dr. Groya not to show this bag to his staff. What did he do? He showed them the bag. So now, everyone is happy. Especially me!
