Dear Mom9mom, It is good to hear from you again.  I'm glad you are home.  I'm sorry you had to go thru this surgery but hopefully you will recover and feel better.  I know it takes some time to heal so please be good to yourself and don't try to do too much.  Let your family help you out.  You know that you can always come here and post and someone will always answer you.  I will be glad to talk with you anytime.  Remember, do take good care of yourself and rest.

Gentle hugs.

Hi Mom,

It is good to know that your surgery is over and that it went well. I hope that you are healing okay. Like Aurora said, take care of you. It is so important that you take care of yourself through this crucial time. Get plenty of rest and keep posting when you can.

Hugs, Karen

Acceptance is the key

The World is but a reflection. Smile, and it will smile back.
