Well, it’s official! You’re on the losing side. The trumpets are blaring, the cymbals are crashing and the drums are drumming – all for YOU! I hope that all went well for you! You’ve been out of surgery now for a little over a month – YIPPIE!!! Your journey will have moments to “pause” – I’d like to impart some words of wisdom for when it does occur - remember these wise words whispered by Confucius – “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” Be patient. You didn’t put it on over night, it won’t come off over night (DARN IT!)… RNY 10/31/03 – down 88 pounds!!! Good luck! — [Anonymous]

I totally understand, and found your story funny. I was told this problem gets better after surgery, I sure hope so in my case. I have found that drinking something like lemonade or orange juice makes it worse. Maybe because of the acid? — doodlebug
|09/13/2003 05:52 AM|
Connie, Been there done that! But still had to chuckle at the thoughts of your story. It does get better after surgery, I promise!!! Hugs! — pam k. S.

~*~I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY~*~ I said a prayer for you today And know God must have heard- I felt the answer in my heart Although He spoke no word I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind, I asked Him to send treasures Of a far more lasting kind, I asked that He'd be near you At the start of each new day, To grant you health and blessings And friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you In all things great and small, But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all ~*~Hugs~*~ — Naes Wls J.
