    Good luck with your surgery. I'm so sorry you had to reschedule; how stressful that must have been for you. I'm looking forward to hearing from you afterwards!

    Praying for you too, Michelle... it's Saturday morning, and I know what that can be like. You are strong and you are on the other side now. It will get better, step by step. You've been through it before and know that. It must feel good to finally have it over with. Again, we are all behind you with our thoughts and/or prayers. Hugs, Susie
