My friend, Lisa (Lwoznick), after suffering greatly from a mechanical failure of her RNY, is being revised by the highly-esteemed Dr. Buchwald tomorrow.    She is joyfullying preparing her bowels today (fun!!) and will be heading out to Minneapolis late tonight for an early surgery tomorrow.    Please keep this wonderful, intelligent young lady in your thoughts tonight and tomorrow as she makes the trek to the Twin Cities and begins her DS journey.   Dr. Buchwald has advised her that she will probably be in surgery for approximately seven hours, so as soon as I hear something from one of her family members, I will let you all know.

Almost to the Dark Side, Lisa!!   Godspeed!
