March 6th is the day! I can't believe it, what a journey. 5 weeks and my life changes, it's so surreal to say I have a surgery date. I found this forum a few days ago and it's been so helpful. I'm usually a lurker but I thought it was time for a change :). Also, anyone have the same surgery date? I'm going to Guelph.
Congratuation Miss! See you on the bench soon!
