I just got off the phone with Meliss's hubby. Her surgery started a little late, but everything went well and she is now in recovery. Yeah!!! She is now officially a loser. :-D I will be visiting her at St. Francis tomorrow, so I'll update more then. Kathy

Hi Melissa! We have the same surgery date! Hope you have a safe, complication-free surgery. Congratulations on beginning your journey, and I wish you nothing but success in the days, months and years to come.

Melissa, I just want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Heavenly Father I ask on this day at this time that you cover your child Melissa with comfort and peace. Let fear, anxiety, and all negative thoughts be eliminated from her mind and from the minds of them that love her. Place a hedge of protection around her Lord, keep her from harms way. I pray that You guide Dr Bours hands and the hands of all who will assist him with Melissa's surgey. Let kindness and tenderness be in the hearts of those who will care for her in her recovery. I ask that her recovery be uneventful, yet quick. I thank you in advance for your Mercy and Grace concerning your daughter Melissa. Jesus, in yiur Mighty Name I pray. Amen.

Melissa, I just want to send some encouragement your way on the Optifast. I know those moments of weakness can make you feel like a total failure. I've been through it many times in the past couple of weeks. Just keep doing what you have to and your surgery date will be here before you know it! Then you will be on your way to feeling and looking FABULOUS!
