I got a note this morning from my boss' wife. The subject line was simply "support". Reading through it brought me to tears because she has so many health problems (diabetis, allergies to the planet, allergies to anesthesia, her weight, etc.) and she told me how much she admired me for doing this. She said her doc had mentioned it to her before and she just veared away from the convo but she has lost A LOT of weight on her own. She's thought about the surgery before but doesn't know if she could do it. She and my boss are coming to visit me in the hospital.
I'm just feeling very overwhelmed with emotion and I guess I just never realized how many people truly cared about me until now. It's so nice to know!!!! This is just that much more motivation to stay around and get healthy. I am one of the luckiest women in the world.
