Hello Alice! You don't know who I am, but I was seeking inspiration from the before and after photos and came across yours. I clicked to view your profile and... WOW. I was inspired. HOnestly, I'm not sure why; but after reading your entire journey I have gained back my momentum to look forward to my re-birthday (June 28). I saw that your posts had become farther and father and fewer between. That, was what was inspiring to me. The fact that you weren't sitting! You WERE out enjoying your life. OUT! Gone fishing! However, or whatever it maybe. And... THAT's what I am looking forward to. Thank you for staying on top of your online OH journal. If I don't hear from you for awhile... I know that your out with your grandkids or something or how you'd said it, "Harvesting the seeds you've sown." Or something like that (smile). -bye- -J

Alice -- When you want to post for people to read it on the Message Board, you need to go to the Message Board at the top of your screen and click those words and then you will be able to post to the Message Board. You can read all kinds of postings about everyone going through this journey. When you post your angel report, where it says No-not an update, hit the arrow and it will say Yes I have an update. Highlight that update and it will show up on the message board when you type it. It will also be blue. So glad to read your update. I am so proud of you. Love/Linda

Hi Alice! I read your profile update and I'm glad to see you're finally home. I hope you continue to have a smooth recovery and you return to good health VERY soon! Take Care!

Hi Everyone -- Alice came home on the 22nd I believe and ended up going back to the hospital a couple days later. I finally located her this past Saturday and she was back in the hospital. She was having problems with her oxygen levels so they put her back in the hospital to run some tests to make sure she is alright. She said she thought she would probably have to go home on the oxygen. She said she didn't want to scare me, but not knowing really me scared. She was suppose to go home on Sunday and call me, but I haven't heard from her yet. I will be calling her home to see if she made it back home today. Please continue to pray for her speedy recovery.

Alice, I just read your profile from start to finish, and I can't help but say I have a tear in my eye. You are the most inpirational people I think I have ever met. I am just now accepting Jesus into my life, head and heart, so I am beginning to understand some of the comments you have made. You made such a tribute to your family, friends and yourself. I RESPECT that. I wish many blessings on your and yours and pray that all will be grand. You definately deserve it. God Bless.......

Hi Everyone -- Alice had her leak test today and it came out well. If everything goes well she will be going home tomorrow afternoon. I have really enjoyed being your Angel Alice and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I haven't yet made it to the otherside but guess what, I believe Alice is going to be my angel on my journey. Everyone should try and be an angel, it is the most fulfilling experience I have ever been through. The feelings you get when you hear the voice of your sister in WLS. It is more than words can express. She said to me "I made it and so will you". She is so wonderful. I thank God for sending you to me Alice. I have found me a friend for life. Thank you Alice for allowing me once again to be your angel. Love--Hugs!!!!!!
