Friday’s Heroes: My Surgical Team

Friday's Heroes - Remembering the fallen officers


This week I’d like to take a moment to thank the folks at the Lahey Clinic Burlington (below) and Newton-Wellesley Hospital (above). I’m not so sure I’d be writing this blog today if they hadn’t been there for me.


Lahey Clinic Burlington


Of course, I owe it all to an expert team of surgeons.

    Hi Lee,

    So glad you’re on the mend. I bought your book at Crime Bake and am enjoying it so much.

    That last picture cracked me up. As a nurse I’ve seen my share of the real thing.

    Good health,

    Lee, for me I had to get a hernia repaired while I was writing my first book. The surgeon who repaired it wound up being my medical consultant and went through the story twice for me.

    Glad you’re feeling better. Remember, take the Physical Therapy seriously when it’s time.

    Oh, I’m so much better today.

    Dave, you’re so right. How many times do you remember hearing thank you in your thirty years? And I don’t mean when you said it as you were clicking on the cuffs. “Thank you, sir, for putting your hands behind your back.”

    That’s what I said. How about you?

    Three cheers for all who were there to pull you through! Let the virtual bubbly flow!

    It is so good to hear your “voice” again 🙂

    Very nice of you to give credit where credit is due. As we who served in Law Enforcement know, “thanks” is a word often forgotten.

    I hope this means that you are on the mend. I not only wish you well from the post-operative complications, but that the underlying cause of you needing surgery has been addressed so that overall you begin to feel better.

    We need your knowledge, your grace, and your beloved sense of humor back into fighting form.

    But not before you are ready.
