Awww thank you Ohio 76. How nice of you for the compliment. What a nice thing to hear on my Birthday! Yep, St. Paddy's Day.
I was born in Alliance, raised in Louisville, been in IN for 17 years now. Still have family in Ohio - Louisville, Canton, Green Twp. Very familiar with the area. I worked for 10 years for the City of Canton as secretary to the Service Director, and later the Service/Safety Director under Cmich and Purses. Got my Assoc Deg from Stark State Tech College but it was plain old Stark Tech when I went there.
CC is where I had all of mine done. Who is your surgeon? I had Victor Fazio -- oh how I love that man for saving my life. One of the hospitals in Canton misdiagnosed me. GI drs in Canton misdiagnosed and then pretty much told me my pain was all in my head (!!!!) Fazio read the same xrays that the Canton hospital took and GI's read, and Fazio knew right from those same pictures that I was obstructed and immediately needed an NG tube before I perforated. Sorry --- I'm on a soapbox. Stick with CC - they are absolutely the best IMO !!!!
Thank you so much for your post. And keep postin'!!! Chime in, say hello, and join in on the chats on Tuesday evenings! Or if you want to try to chat at another time, post a topic on the forum and you never know who might show up.
