I've been away from the computer for a few days, but I've been so worried about you! So glad you're home; just concentrate on healing and getting rid of that nasty infection.

Can you believe you've finally had surgery? It's been a long road, but you're on your way to a new and better life!

So, are you pooping ok?? LOL

Lots of hugs,
