“Hello, it's Marie again! I am officially over four months out of surgery and I am doing absolutely phenomenal! I am 100% back to all my skills in gymnastics and I couldn't be happier! My coaches are thrilled to have me out of pain and they even say some of my skills are even better than before (probably because I am out of pain), but all thanks to you. I just wanted to say thank you again for everything you have done for me and allowing me to get through the surgery with ease. I have now had no pain in my elbow/hand for a few weeks now and I am thrilled. So thank you again and I hope all is well for you and everyone else at the Hand Center of Georgia!”
