Dr. Caruso


 Earlier this week one of my very favorite burn doctors,
 Dr. Caruso passed away.
Dr. Caruso saved my life several times.
(You don't say that about someone everyday, you know?).
My skin is patched together mostly by his talented hands.
He truly believed in me, he believed in my family,
and he believed in my recovery.
 He was kind and talented and larger than life.
(Christian, me, and Dr. Caruso, 2009)

Along with his family and close friends he will be missed greatly ,
by the burn community, his fellow medical workers, and me,
I will miss him.
