Wow Debbie, You really had a lot of support through OH. I am loving this site and want to thank you for sending me here in the first place. I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. I can't wait to see you after your reconstructive surgeries. Your going to be in a bikini Girl! I miss you so much! I miss the talks we'd have when we ran together and chatting everyday from across our cubes. I jhope we never loose touch with each other!
I am pleased to inform everyone that Debbie is now on the other side! I went to see her at the hospital tonight. She looked great. She had no complications and is doing great! Welcome to our new loser!
~~~~CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR UPCOMING SURGERY. ~~~~
Prayers that the Lord will guide your surgeons hands, and you have a speedy recovery. You are about to start an amazing journey. Some days will be good some will be bad, but the results in the long run are worth it all. Looking forward to hearing from you on the loosing side. Huggs and Prayers
Congratulations on your surgery date! I have some Zen Wisdom for you - Nothing exists but momentarily...One thing flows into another...observe things as they are, let everything go as it goes. This is to put everything under control in its widest sense. --- May God keep you close to his side as you travel your new journey. You will have ups and downs. You can always turn to us, your AMOS family, we will give support, comfort and encouragement. You will find this will be the best thing you could ever have done for yourself as well as your family. I know that was true for me. Keep us posted when you reach the "other" side. I pray for a speedy and easy recovery for you. Don’t forget to update your profile at least monthly. We all like to see how we are doing!!! Make sure you take pictures. It’s great to see the new you emerge!!! Not to mention the look on YOUR face when you look at those pictures and compare them in a few months! It’ll be a BIG WOW!!! Please remember too, that this is a *tool* to use. Make sure you use it wisely. The first year it’s pretty easy, after that I’ve been hearing (I’m not speaking from experience as I’m not a year out yet) that it gets increasingly difficult. Choose the right foods and measurements wisely! Good luck and God Bless!!! RNY 10/31/03 257/133 I’M AT GOAL!!! Posted in Loving Memory of Paula – Momma Angel who passed away 6/10/04 (Note Momma did not pass away from anything related to WLS – she had not had it)
I wish you a journey that is safe, and uneventful. I commend you on having the courage to take your own health and happiness into your own hands. Be Blessed!! Stay Strong in teh struggle, and remember you never walk alone *smile* You'll be in my prayers!!
