Thanks again for all your kind wishes. You are such nice people. I just brought Mrs. Cohn Zohn home from the hospital — only one day after her surgery. Get this. She had a choice during her hip replacement. They could put her under full anesthetic. They could give her an epidural and give her a light anesthetic. They could give her only an epidural. She went for the epidural only. Which meant she was wide awake and watched the entire hip replacement on a TV monitor. I never would have the guts for that. She loved it. The surgeon, John Dearborn at Washington Hospital in Fremont — the guy is a whiz — was so thrilled he narrated the entire operation to Mrs. Cohn as he was working. In the background 80′s disco music was pumping through the operating room. Everyone was grooving to the music. Sounds like fun, not that I want a hip replacement of my own.

    Mrs. CohnZone sounds like one tough dudette! And now comes the hardest part: having to eat Mr. CohnZone’s cooking for a while! But she’ll survive; I just went through something similar with my wife; she grinned and bore it; Mrs. CohnZone will too!

    Glad she came through OK. Best wishes to all at the Cohn household!

    Women are much tougher than men. I would much rather wake up when it is over.

    Mrs. CohnZone is tough. I’ve had 2 major surgeries in the past 2 months and I just want them to put me OUT.

    Sounds like he’s a “hip” doctor…
    One step at a time…

    It definitely sounds like better television than all the Superbowl hype and I can’t stand the sight of blood! Although I’m thinking there is a Superbowl ad in here somewhere…

    I also have heard great reviews about Dr. John Dearborn. I’ve heard he is one of the best hip surgens in the entire Country. GOOD CHOICE

    Glad it all worked out so well. I used to need an epi-whatever when Signletary was the coach. Watching those games was more painful than a spinal tap…
