Hello BETSY - [sigh] ...I'm sorry, I can't believe I called you "Becky" in my last message, butcha' know I meant well, right? Thankfully Wendy caught it and brought it to my attention! :) Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS gorgeous - you've done it!!!!! You've taken back your life, your health and your future. With this surgery comes a few learning curves and adjustment periods along the way, but the most difficult part is behind you now, sweet lady. It looks like you've rec'd the best Christmas Present anyone could ever ask for -- a second chance to LIVE life again! Hang in there, walk as much as you can, sip sip sip, keep yourself hydrated and let the rest fall into place - your biggest priority right now is recovery and regaining your strength. Paul and I are so happy and excited for you - we look forward to all of your updates as you venture forward with your weight loss journey and new life. Hugs and love - Lei
