Ohh, where do I start...I have filled out many a support page, but none quite like this one, this is for my baby sister :) I am so proud of you for making this life altering step to change your life, you will never know!! I remember when I told you what I was going to do, you thought I had lost it, I was crazy, and you would NEVER do this (LOL) and now I sit here typing this out, just coming home from the hospital where you are now a LOOSER. I am so happy for you, and I know the rents are happy for you as well. Dad almost cried at lunch because he was so worried about you. Sitting in that waiting room, and 3 1/2 hours go by, and no word, then asking at the station about you, and they said you was still in surgery...OMG...my heart dropped, I freaked out a bit. So, I told Dad what they had told me, and he said it was ok....we went for another cig, where I tried to call Cleve, but he didnt answer, so I called Natalie. She told me not to worry, give it 45 more minuets, that you were fine, and for me to STOP WORRYING. I said, OK, 45 more min. So, back up to the waiting room where Dad and I tried to convince each other we were not worried about you. (not sure it worked as planned) That Dr of yours had all of 5 min to come out the door, or I was going to go off, and here he came. I saw him searching the room for me and Dad, and he found me, and he gave me a smile, and I knew it was ok. Now I know how it is to wait for someone you love to come out of surgery, I will NEVER take that for granted again. You are a trooper, and I am so very proud of you, glad you made this life saving choice, things will work out, they always do, if you need ANYTHING, please let me know. Also know that I might not say it much, but I LOVE YOU. You are my little sister, I have known you since birth.....sisters forever...glad you made it to the other side ok....I was worried about you......damn it, sitting here crying now with emotions.....Pent up from the day I suppose, too damned worried about you today!! I love you, see you soon :)
