Congratulations on your surgery and Best Wishes for a smooth recovery. I'm a pre-op patient of Dr. Appel, in fact, I have my group meeting with the doc the Friday.
I hope to meet you at a support group meeting soon.
Blessings and hugs,
Kelle, I am so glad you are recovering after the surgery now. You have been on my mind the past 2 days. I hope you don't mind I posted your surgery date on the Appel-Steinberg yahoo group, but I wanted everyone to be praying for you there too! I will keep you in my thoughts and hope to see you at the next meeting as a new 'loser.'
Hi Kelle! Congrats on having your surgery! Let the weight loss begin!! I bet you feel relieved now. It's over and now you are on the other side and can join the ranks of the losers. Welcome, my friend!!! Happy RE-Birthday to you! From this day forward you life will change forever. Just try to take it easy and remember to sip, walk, deep breathe and cough. Take those pain pills and splint the tummy! These first few days are rough, but I assure you they get better with each passing day. Some days those emotions will resurface and try to get the best of you, but just remember what you’ve been through to get this far! I’m sure you’ll be proud of what you’ve accomplished!! You know you can always come here and get a dose of confidence and good will! We will still be here to support you and cheer you on as the pounds come off! I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you today and that you are in my thoughts and prayers for an uncomplicated, swift recovery. You are an official loser!! Wishing you much success in your weight-loss journey. Today you burst out of that cocoon and become a beautiful butterfly! Tomorrow you’ll spread those wings and embark on a wonderful journey! Soft hugs to you today. God bless, DI from NJ - Lap RNY, 12/09/03 ~In Loving Memory of Momma Angel~
