To Vickie's Family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She was such a sweet and thoughtful person, and the times I spoke with her here on OH, she always brought a smile to my face. We will all miss her.
Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! Stay positive, things may seem tough at the beginning but they get better everyday! This is an amazing journey you are about to embark on. WLS will be the best thing you've ever done for yourself. Sending you best wishes for a easy & quick recovery.
