Mr Kevin watterson has announced that he is to retire in March.
Now to say I owe this man a huge debt of thanks would be something of an understatement. Waaaay back in the very early 90's he performed open heart surgery on my father, childrens work wasn;t as common in those days as diagnosis was still pretty poor, so he had time to fit the odd adult in his surgery slots, my father being one of those. fast forward 20 or so years, and he was to perform a minor miracle on Little Leon, 13 hours plus in surgery, an operation the great man called challenging and complicated, so I can only imagine how difficult it actually was.
|Little Leon makes sure he has the new surgery teams numbers|
Fortunately, Kevin leaves a good team Behind him, Mr Jaber was part of the team that operated on Leon, so there is that continuity, and the new head of surgery is Carin Van Doorn, no stranger to Leeds, and has established a superb reputation throughout Europe, so we can rest assure leon will be in good hands.
Little Leon has a busy few weeks coming up, so look out for the latest updates, It;s his Birthday Next week, the Carol Service, Christmas Parties, Christmas itself and daddy's birthday, so we'll have lots to share.
If you drop by, leave us a message to say hi.
