Speaking of Fahey ~ no, I don't have any of those in our Nolan or
Waldrons, BUT ... I had an orthopaedic surgeon who was Dr. Fahey ~ that
was back in 1968. He was out of St. Francis Hospital in Evanston and I
"think" that there were a bunch of Faheys in Park Ridge.
Anybody have a Fahey who was an orthopaedic surgeon? I would love to
add in my journal about him. I was only 5 at the time of my surgery.
All I remember is he didn't have really good bed-side manners ~ pretty
gruff. Did some work for Cripped Children organization. But he was
suppose to be the best in the country, which is why my family moved from
California to the northern suburbs of Chicago.
