<B>HAPPY 1st SWITCH-I-VERSARY, LAURA!</B> It is an incredible ride -- full of highs and lows and cha-cha steps but we do find it's almost always worth it ... To find a new body along with a renewed zest for life is such a gift ... Glad to see you're reaping the benefits ... It's obvious in that bright, wide-eyed smile ... Godspeed, Baby ... The sky's the limit!

Hey Laura- Hope you're home soon and getting better each day. I hope your recover is a good one, and remember to walk when you can, as it helps! Take good care now. ((Hugs))

I just spoke with Laura, and she and I agreed I shouldn't visit her yet, due to my heavy cold and the risk of germs and post-op pneumonia. BUT the good news is, she's feeling great, up and walking around, doing stairs with the physical therapist, disconnected from all machines and IVs, and is about to take her first shower. Dr. Rabkin's so pleased with her progress that they're dismissing her tomorrow! Last night Laura did experience a fever and the sensation of not being able to get a deep breath -- but that's apparently not uncommon with abdominal sugery generally and today she's fever-free. She says she can't believe she's switched and she sends greetings to all!
