Elizabeth  Jones underwent the ketamine coma study nearly four years ago.


Dear Dr. Kirkpatrick,  


It's been awhile since we've been in touch directly, but I wanted you to know that I have not forgotten how you have helped to change my life. 

Every holiday, special event and happy memory I have is seamlessly blended with a deep appreciation for what yourself, Dr. Robert Schwartzman and Dr.  Peter Rorh, have done for me.    

My husband, daughter and I just returned from a trip to Disney, and I thought it only fair that you see a glimpse into our now, blissful life together.  I added in a few other photos with special meaning as well. 

Recently at the beach, my daughter, Sophie, was dancing around with a shawl that my husband had bought for me to help keep me warm while I was in the hospital in Germany - seeing her dance with it brought me to tears.  I still marvel at the fact that I am at a point in my life where I can be a mother to a little girl I never thought I'd be able to have because my life had been taken away by something called RSD / CRPS.   

Having my life back is something I have never taken for granted, and I just felt the need to express to you the lasting effect your work has had on my life, and the life of those around me.
