    Surgery tomorrow!!!

    I go in tomorrow at 6am for my surgery!!!!!

    Seeing as though I probably won't be writing for a couple of weeks, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone on this board for giving me so much insight and positivity into the world of living with Scoliosis! I really didn't know much about it until I found this board. You all have been so great in helping me to better understand what I should expect both leading up to and after my surgery. I don't know what I would have done without you all!

    Hopefully you'll all hear from me very soon! Take care!

    Heidi, we will be thinking of you tomorrow and through the coming days, and we'll be sure to put in some extra prayers. If you can, have someone let us know how it went. All the very best. Look forward to hearing from you the other side. ~Laura

    Hey all...thanks for the well wishes and prayers!! It's a little after 9pm East Coast time and I'm procrastinating with my packing like crazy! I'm starting to get some butterflies about tomorrow morning, but hope to work through them by listening to my relaxation tapes!

    I just have to keep in mind that like the Superbowl Champions, after this surgery (9 months after, I'm going to DisneyWorld!!!!

    Thanks again to everyone! I'll try to have my hubby post something in the next week or so if I don't!
