Hi There

Hey JuJu
Boy I've missed you!!!! Let me just say that you of all people know what a chicken I was about the surgery. The waiting is the hardest part!!!! I am now 7 days post op and never felt better. I do get tired but everything else is great. I am so glad that I did have the surgery and you will be too. I will be on Thursday night to hold your hand for sure. Love Angeldolls from the chat room.

Grads. on completing your pre-op

Dear Julie,
Congradulations on completing your pre-op. My pre-op is scheduled for April 18th. So if you have any advice for me, please let me know. I want you to know that even though I don't know you, I will be thinking about you through the days that come. I know how nervous I am and my surgery is a couple of weeks away. I can't imagine what you might be going through. I will pray for you on your day of surgery. I will be celebrating a birthday on Friday and I will be celebrating for you, because I know the Lord will take care of you. Good Luck and Rich Blessings.

Thank you Shara! :)

That makes me feel so much better, knowing that people are praying for me.. I really appreciate it.. Happy early birthday, too! I'm very nervous, but not as nervous as before pre-op.. lol

My best advice to you for pre-op, is everytime you think of a question to ask, go and write it down right away.. Make a list of every single concern you have and as they're taken care of, check it off.. It helps in knowing that things are getting done and eases the mind.. Also, if you're not sure what to ask, go to the pull down menus for the lists of what other women asked. My main concern was keeping my ovaries and I got a lot of information about that and some reassurance about them not shutting down prematurely. So, whatever your biggest concern is, get that out of the way first, don't let your Dr rush you AT ALL.. Make sure you walk away from pre-op, feeling good about what you've learned and feeling good about your Dr.. My Dr, God love him, spent over an hour with me on Monday and answered every single question I had and then some..

God Bless and thanks!! S!
