Hi, we are both having surgery tomorrow, I have asked god to wrap us in a blanket of his love, and for us to both have success tomorrow. I know you will. God Bless.

I am just getting nervous. I have less than a week. Next monday is the big day. I am going to try different protein drinks today and tomorrow. Is there any food advice for after surgery?

Less than a month away!!!!! getting exciting isnt it? Next time youre up here for an appointment, let me know we could catch lunch or something.... I can eat CHICKEN!!!! I am soooooo excited about this, most people cant handle chicken for quite a while. Its my saving grace for getting in protien! Drop me a line next time youre up here, im off work still for a bit. did you know we get put on a 20# lift restriction for 6 wks post surgery! Of course HR said that wouldnt fly. I'd get your Short term dis. lined up now so you dont have to use ALLLLL your vac. and sick leave. Hopefully you've talked to Diana and Jessica in HR about your FML. I know you kept asking me, and im a horrible person for not getting back to you sooner, but yeah, FML and Short Term Disability. That should do it! Okay well, talk to you soon, ~Peace~ Amy

Just poppin in to say HI! So, when is your date? My surgery went smooth except my BP sky rocketed....No worries though, but im tellin you, gettin in the protien has been tough!!!! Especially since im now dairy intollerant, not just lactose, but all dairy...Not to scare you. Anyhow, let me know your date and ill try to come see you in the hospital... Well, good luck and I hope to see you soon on the loosing side!!!! ~Peace~Amy -16.2 lbs. as of Tuesday, exactly 2 weeks out!!!

Best of luck to you, Im sure insurance will approve you pretty quick. They approved me in like a day and a half. Well I hope this is the right Courtney, either way, best wishes and the emotional roller coaster is a real killer. ~Peace~ Amy
