Donna was so pleasant to talk to and she went the extra mile to give me the dates for surgery and was available to provide any additional information. She also gave me the best news I could possibly hear. She told me there was a surgery date open on Feb 17th. I checked my watch and realized that was in 10 days. Wow. I want that surgery date. I was expecting the earliest date to be at least 3 months out so hearing this was incredible. It meant that I can return to climbing, running, everything 3 months sooner. I let Donna know that I would have to make some calls before I could say yes to the date. She told me this was no problem and she could reserve it for the time being. Awesome. I said I’d give her a call back before the end of the day. Immediately I began to let people know, Mom, Dad, coworkers. It sounds like this date would work for everyone. Fuck yes.
