LOOKING BACK AND LOOKING AHEAD THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

end and still plans to move to New York next year.

It’s been a good year. I’ve seen my three boys a lot this year — we’ve done a lot together and had many adventures. My two youngest sons are thinking about their next phases in life. They live at home at the moment, but that could soon change. Thankfully, they both have jobs! They both work for an organic juice company, both making healthy juices and smoothies and delivering them to customers. My middle son is thinking about teaching, following in his mother's footsteps, maybe. My youngest son is thinking of medicine or nursing. Of course, he doesn’t want to enroll at a university until he knows exactly what he wants to do. He doesn’t want to waste any money or time figuring it all out in the first year or two. My oldest son continues to get roles in theater; he has two productions to prepare for before year

My wife’s dad turned 94 in October. He’s still in relatively good shape, though he did have a fall recently. Since the fall, he’s been consistent with his physical and occupational therapy, and he’s recovered well. My wife made a trip back down to San Diego to visit him and check up on him. It’s been a good year at Summit PT as well. We’ve been able to help so many people with recovery and pain management. I’m looking forward to expanding some of our offerings in the new year, and I’ll be putting more workshops on the schedule! Speaking of workshops, I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback on the classes we’ve held this year. So far, our patients have found them very valuable and educational, which was my goal. There are many treatment options out there people don’t know about, including treatment programs for balance issues or various types of pain. And be sure to take a look at this month’s insert. As a thank-you to my patients, we’re offering a valuable free screening for your friends and family, or anyone who may be experiencing pain. As more workshops are added to the schedule in the coming months, we’ll be sure to let you know so you can get

signed up or sign up a loved one who might be interested or have questions related to topics we’ll be covering (upcoming topics to be determined). This year, we added a wonderful new staff member! You may have already met him, but, even if you haven’t, he’s eager to meet you! I’m talking about Teddy! Teddy is a Shih Tzu-bichon frise mix and has been around the office for a few months now. He has a great personality, and the patients love him. I love him, too (as long as he doesn’t get in the way because I don’t want to step on him)! The next time you’re in, be sure to say hi to Teddy. As the year winds down, it’s good to reflect on what went well this year and to start thinking about what you want to accomplish in 2020. Maybe you want to learn something new, or maybe you want to improve your health. No matter your goal, we wish you the best. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and we’ll see you in the new year!
