Hi Amanda, I was thinking about you and your surgery day as I was walking in to Fair Oaks Hospital this morning. You know, giving blood to the vampires for some labs. Anyway, I wish you the best and hope everything goes textbook. Hope you're home soonest.

Friday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench!

There are so much I want to say to you . You remind me so muc of me . You should be commended and respected for taking a stand against Obestiy . Surgery gives you the tool... your heart gives you the spirit .. with the two .. you can be successful and regain your life . Many come to the place you are ! You are now a part of the elite . The winners .. the go getters .. and you will be sitting on the loosers bench. Remember that you are human , and that mistakes will be made . Each day is a do-over .. and if you keep your eye on the prize .. ( The prize being your health and new life ) You will see that there is no dream to big to dream !! Best wishes .. know that I love you and am here for you always, Natalie
