Meanwhile, did you guys see the news about that incredible double hand transplantation at Johns Hopkins for a US vet? I’m so proud of Dr. Jaimie Shores, originally from Truth or Consequences, NM, who helped perform that procedure. It was fascinating having listened to my veterinarian father grill Jaimie about the details of the procedure as we waited to go out together for my wedding last weekend — Dr. Shores was one of my best men, and so was my dad. Jaimie’s been one of the most influential and important people in my life since I met him while breaking my high school basketball scoring record in 1991 while he was trying to cover me. Well, it was a couple years later at UNM where we become inseparable best friends. But, look at him now!
