  • Thank you everyone so much for your hugs, well wishes and prayers! I'm trying so hard to be positive. I'm kind of faking it for my hubby's sake as he feels so bad for me. Maybe if I fake it long enough, it will rub off and I'll really start to feel positive.

    I hate going to a new doc. I have such security with all my others, we've been through so much.

    I researched the surgeon I've been referred to. We went to the same college and med school, but several years apart (I'm older:)). So....I'm wearing a college sweatshirt, figure, it wil give us something to break the ice with and a common bond. Hope it works!

    It's time to go! Shari
  • Wow! Just what you need right now! I will be sending good vibes your way. Good luck at the dr. today.

  • Sending more hugs, well wishes, and prayers!

    You've been through so much and you've handled things so gracefully. I'm hoping that you get better news than you expect today.
