Hi all ~ I spoke with Chapin's husband last night and he said she came through her surgery well. It took about 4 hours and she had a while to wait for a room, but she is doing as expected. I will be visiting her this afternoon so I will report more after. Good luck to all!

Chapin~ Best of luck tomorrow are almost there girl! You will experience a lot of emotions today, know these are normal and to be expected. Remember why you chose to do this, and stay positive! Think of your future with your 3 boys, not to mention the big boy John! Can't you wait for the day you can all go to the amusement park and do all the rides with the kids? I know that is one of my goals. The next week won't be easy, but it will be definitely worth it! Good luck my friend and I will visit you on Friday...lots of love Kathy

TOMORROW IS THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!! ***jumping up and down with joy, excitement, anticipation and nervous energy!!!*** First, I have to THANK everyone that has been so supportive of me in this journey! The overwhelming posts I have on my surgery date page is just amazing! It means so much to me! THANK YOU!!!!! My parents come down from Maine today, so they can be here to help with the kids. I need to be at the hospital at 6:15AM EST tomorrow and surgery is for 7:45 EST. SO, hopefully...I won't have any delays! Ya right! LOL Oh, and of course...I got my period today....isn't that always the way!?!?!?!? ACK! I think when you are done having kids or you don't want kids, you should just be period free! LOL I am on a liquid diet today and have to take MOM and 2 different antibiotics to prepare for surgery tomorrow. It is only 9:45 and I am hungry already! ACK! Oh well, nothing is going to stop me now!!!! Thanks again all! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow!!! I will update you all as soon as I can! Kathy Gorr, stay strong and healthy! Thanks for being my guinea pig! ;o) It is going to be so nice to have each other for support! Best of luck to you all wherever you are in your journey! ***{{{{HUGS}}}}***
