    Dr. Lauder,

    Always think about you any time I look at my wrist or my right when pains me greatly! I just followed up with Dr. Adams @ Iowa City and he says all looks great with my left wrist.

    So happy to see the press on your first wrist replacement in WA. It is too bad that no one in Omaha felt that way when you did the first here in Omaha. I think you deserved huge press but we all know where TNMC loyalties are and orthopedics is not it.

    I may be thinking about a total wrist on the right in about another year. After visiting with Dr. Adams, I am not sure if I will go with a solid fusion or the wrist replacement.

    Anyway, continued best of luck to you.
