Andrea, thanks for your support and prayers. I feel calm and confident going into this surgery and have placed my future in God's hands. I hope I lose as well as you have been losing. Your site is so pretty. Tricia

<b>~*~I SAID A PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY~*~ I said a prayer for you today And know God must have heard- I felt the answer in my heart Although He spoke no word I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind, I asked Him to send treasures Of a far more lasting kind, I asked that He'd be near you At the start of each new day, To grant you health and blessings And friends to share your way. I asked for happiness for you In all things great and small, But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.~*~Hugs~*~</b>

Andrea, my surgeon had me taking 3 children's chewables. I chose the "plus iron" type. Then I was told to take 3 chewable tums at bedtime about 15 minutes apart. This was during the healing stage. I know can swallow pills and have switched to them instead. I take a daily prenatal (no not preg just better vits). and a calcium citrate/carbonate with Vit D supplement at night (I get the Members mark brand calcium at Sam's club, they have several to look for the combo I listed). Hope this helps. Jamie

^j^ Angel coming in for a landing! ^j^ I just spoke with Andrea (you know her voice is just as sweet as she is!) and she is just sounding better and better. She is up and walking about the hospital floor and tried apple juice and ate half of a sugar free popsicle! WTG! She will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow and will start for home on Monday after seeing the surgeon. Andrea, I am so proud of you. You are doing so well. You are quite the inspiration!

^j^ Angel coming in for a landing! ^j^ I spoke with Andrea last night and posted but it looks like it went into cyber heaven, never to return. I spoke with Andrea today. She is sounding so much better! She is having ice chips and has already walked four times today. It looks like she will be in the hospital for the next few days, but is doing GREAT! She has all sorts of support from other AMOS folks she found online who had their surgery at the same time! WTG! They are all there supporting each other. None of that would have been possible without this web site. Again, Andrea, welcome to the other side and Happy Rebirthday!
