You have prayers and thoughts and all kinds of support! Congrats on getting the date, that's a huge hurdle.
I am unable to come up with a clever signature. I don't even really have a true diagnosis. I am on percocet and robaxin for chronic hand pain. So, in lieu of a dx and all, I'll just say that I am the daughter of an awesome and mighty KING, THE King of Kings and it is only through Him that I am allowed to live each day.

Congratulations Michele. It won't be long now. I know you're excited and nervous, but just think what it will be like when you have the surgery and then get healed. Take care.

Hi Sore.. Glad to hear you have your date for your surgery. That day will be here before you know it.

How do they do this surgery anyways? sure sounds painful so I hope they give you some good pain

control, esp. when you go home. Take care of yourself until then.
