Buttercup, thanks so much for updating us, I was wondering how she was getting along. Tell her we all said hello and wish her a speedy recovery so she can get back to the forum. I do hope they can keep her pain at a minimum that is so important during the recovery process.

I will second what Straydog said, You know, hearing about what you younger people are going through, especially your friend maddies, it really saddens me that you guys have all these problems, and I am sorry that you have to experience such pain, at such a young age!  I will keep both of you in my prayers! and I to wish your friend a speedy and painless recovery.
I do wish you both all the best!
