I was very proud of my success in infertility microsurgery & the recognition of becoming a charter member in the Society of Reproductive Surgeons.
Proudest accomplishments
As a result of meningitis at age 10, I gradually developed profound bilateral deafness. I have used the most powerful hearing aids available for 40 years & use lip reading as a most helpful adjunct. In spite of being surrounded by masked nurses & doctors in the operating & delivery rooms I was able to develop a large obstetrical & gyn surgical practice & function at the highest level -- only possible with a dedicated team of nurses & assistants. I thought the ball game was over at age 30. I never thought I would be in practice at 75. I am now being evaluated for a cochlear implant.
If retired, activities & interests?
Planning to attend reunion?
Unable to attend (going on a trip to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary)
Best regards to my classmates!
