Dear Doctor Wood, 10/5/2019 I wanted to take a moment to write and say thanks for saving my life in April of 2016. Your skill, talent and dedication to my health is best demonstrated by my excellent health 3.5 years later. Since my surgery, I have written two books, retired after 17 years with IBM, and took my bride of 41 years and our five grandchildren on some 13,000 miles of travel in our RV. In 2017 we traveled to Niagara Falls, Canada, Mt. Rushmore and back. In 2018 to the Grand Canyon and back. After two full years of retirement, I needed more interaction with people, and I returned to work (3 days per week) in the IT industry with the Virginia Department of Transportation. Dr. Wood, my more senior years have been good to me and it’s all because of you! Thank you. I trust that God will continue to bless you and your family as you serve the fine citizens of Alabama. I’m certain that your hands will touch so many others in such a positive way. LTC Dave Merrit
