My doctor who I have been going to for over 40 years is retiring soon. Dr. Williams is an internist who has been monitoring my Ulcerative Colitis ever since. In 2008 he discovered a cancer polyp while doing a colonoscopy. From that time, he had made sure I was getting the best treatment I could have to fight it. On the 28th of February I had my last visit with him. At the end of March he will be retiring. This little token you see if something that I felt like I wanted to do. I carved this little guy out of basswood. Painted with acrylic paint and used polyurethane to protect it. He is mounted on a piece of walnut. For the scope I used piece of wire. The total height is about 7” tall.
Dr. Williams was very excited when I presented this to him. ALSO, his nurse Carol had also been part of the team for the same amount of time was just as deserving. I did not want to leave her out of the mix, so I gave her the Santa carving. This is about a 12” tall Santa. She was very excited too.
