Sandra, I have to say you are my hero. I am currently looking into getting the surgery done and I too am morbidly obese. I am at my largest ever...320. I have a 4 year old and I cannot even play with breaks my heart. All I have the energy to do is sit in front of the computer and play. I will definately keep up with your board to see how you are doing... God Bless Huggers Dede

I just wanted to say GOOD LUCK on your surgery. Take a deep breath, try to relax. Know that we all care about you and are wishing you the best. Think positive, it really does help. After surgery, remember to turn, cough, take deep breaths, and walk to prevent complications. Hold your incision when you cough, it helps it hurt less. Keep your profile updated, it may make a difference in the live of someone else. Smile, keep your chin up! And lastly, if your chin does fall, just remember, from this position it is easier to moon people! :) (Also, humor helps too!)
