    Everyone is pulling for you, Melissa.

    You are in the home stretch. Please focus on yourself and try not to let family issues make you lose your focus. I know it is hard.

    Good luck!

    I agree with Sharon. You're most important right now. Plenty of time to worry about family issues after you've regained your health. And some family issues, you can't do a darn thing about anyway, so concentrate on you if you can. Take care. Not long now! We're all behind you Melissa.

    Melissa,

    Wishing you all the best for your surgery tomorrow. As others have said, this is the time for you to concentrate on your own health and put other worries aside.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Ed . The only other surgery that I could have would be if I do not fuse and I have a broken rod
