Suzan, CONGRATS on becoming a loser. I know you are excited and nervous. I know I will. I am hoping to a loser soon myself. I wanted to wish you the best of luck in your new journey. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a successful and uncomplicated surgery. :-)
Suzan, Congratulations and best wishes for a smooth and speedy recovery! Don't forget to take a pillow and/or a Bari Buddy (available at the OH.com store) with you to the hospital, you won't be sorry that you did! You need the pillow for all kinds of comforts from coughing to side support and frankly sometimes the hospital pillows just aren't really great. Also, you might inquire with the hospital about whether a fan will be available to you, if not and permitted, you might take one with you. The combination of the narcotics and the leg cuffs they use to prevent clots makes many people very very hot!
bright blessings to you in this part of the journey and much success too!~Caroline O.--
Prayers, hugs and blessings to you as you take this huge step in your journey. May all the negatives and difficulties that have brought you to this point melt away with the excess weight. May your surgery and recovery be swift, smooth and uneventful.
Best wishes and extra prayers for smooth surgery and recovery. A positive mental attitude is your best preparation pre-op and throughout the next exciting year! You'll do great with this life-saving tool*
