My recent procedure confirmed no evidence of disease or “NED.” Translated, that means I am still cancer free!
After I woke up and they delivered the good news, I asked my treatment team to come in for a picture. Here it is. I also attached a letter I just received from the doctor.
Dear Mr. Mark T Arsenault,
I would like you to know that I appreciate the opportunity to participate in your care yesterday. My intention is to make your visit with our GI department one of your best and most satisfying experiences.
Again, thank you for the opportunity to participate in your care. Thanks for the photo – we enjoyed it a lot.
GERALD JOHN KOHN MD
Now that’s the kind of medical note I don’t mind receiving at all.
