Trauma, PM&R (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation), Orthopedics, Orthopedics Hand, Endocrinology, Internal Medicine, Urology, Plastics, Nueropsyche, Infectious Disease, Gastrointerology, Hepatology, Nephrology, Oral Maxillofacial, Dental, Anesthesia, Radiology, Acupuncture, Social Work, Behavioral Health, TBI, Audiology, Assistive Techology, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Respiratory, Complex Wound Team, General Surgery Wound Care, General Surgery Colostomy Care, Dietary, Amputee Clinic, Seating Clinic, Speech Pathology and Nursing. Now that he is an outpatient, add Warrior Clinic.
I cannot even begin to count the number of doctors! We went through three primary residents on the trauma team, Obi, Ben and Diego, and two on the PM&R team. There have been numerous interns and residents that have cycled through. Residents change about every two months and interns every four weeks, but that might depend on the service. Attendings are supposed to stay the same.
As for special visitors, I could try to count, but I would probably lose count halfway through. We've had Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Rodney Freylinghuysen Congressman from NJ, Jack Reed Senator from RI, Kansas, Montel Williams, Kid Rock, Sgt Slaughter, Joe Westphal (Undersectary of the Army), Gen Dempsey, Gen Chiarelli (former Vice Chief of Staff, Army), Gen Lloyd Austin (new Vice Chief of Staff of the Army) Gen Franks, CSM Grippe, Gen Odierno (Chief of Staff, Army), Director of NCIS, Wee Man, John Voight, etc.
Care packages? Cards? Letters? No way to count. We really appreciate all of the love and support from the community. Without that support, this journey would be so much more difficult.
