31 hours and counting down
« on: March 31, 2008, 10:07:38 pm »
Hi all,
31 hours until  my surgery and I enter the world of the 'posties".  Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and well wishes.  You truely are amazing group and I am ever thankful to all of you.  Thanks to those of you for the long distance phone calls and hours of my endless questions.  I will post as soon as I can.  My husband already has a long list of people to call, so I'm not sure I can have him be my "on-line secretary" as well.  Looking forward to an easy, speedy, dizzy-free recovery. (I don't ask for much!)
Hope (elderbirds) ::)

Hope-

You know I am sending you all the good wishes, prayers, karma and ju-ju in the universe.  If your husband isn't overloaded and you want him to call me with a post surgery update, I'll be very happy to post for you on this forum.  PM me if you want my number.  No pressure. 

We are all with you in spirit - be strong!

hugs,
Debbi

I'm sending you many kisses to your forehead.  :-*  :-*  :-*  :-*  :-* 16
I believe you are given choices in life and it is not what has happened to you that defines who you are.  It is how you handle the situation and finding the positive in an almost hopeless situation that counts the most.  My son is my hero and I have had the pleasure of learning this from him.
