Several weeks ago, while recuperating from the flu, I took the dogs out for a run. Twenty minutes later I started to feel weak and dizzy. I ran the last block to my home but became so dizzy that I collapsed and fell face first onto my macadam driveway, the surface was very rough and old. I sustained considerable damage to my face including a large hole through my upper lip which was also heavily abraded. There lacerations to my chin, nose and forehead which required stitching . It took many hours of repair in the emergency room by Doctor Fischer, who was competent, patient and very skillful. Several weeks later there was almost no trace of the injuries and people remarked that I healed exceptionally well- I had to say it was the surgeon and I am still amazed by his work. The doctor has my permission to use the pictures he took.
