Wow Big Lucy it really has been a long time since we have heard from you. I am so sorry to hear about
you needing surgery. Just take good care of yourself and remember its a big hurdle. I wish you had more time to pop in more often. I think I like how your book sounds, seems to have worked just fine for you at the dr appt. That was crappy of him starting to tell you to just deal with the pain, they just don't get it sometimes. The rats lol. Take care and let us hear from you please.
