Renee - you know I just luv ya. You are so strong and have worked so hard to keep a good attitude no matter what. I pray that this surgery is perfect, and that you are finally able to start getting better so your body can be as strong and full of energy as your spirit.
I also want to tell you that I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I've been praying for comfort for you and your family as you work through this tough time. I am sure he is so proud of you for being strong and working so hard to become healthy again.
Take good care,
