Ok my last surgery is tmrw but i dont think their going to allow me to get it because i have the following symptom----
Runny nose
sore throat
slight fevers
basically i have the common cold how fun lol jk. Ive had a bad cough for a few days but everthing got worse when my family came over, my aunt and 2 uncles and 4 cusins were sick when they got here. Almost everyone used the same restroom and shower. My mom says because i was in my room most of the time that i couldnt of gotton sick from them... she forgot its realllllllyyyy easy for me to get sick, "she now thinks i can fight off small virus's cuz i had my colon removed." that doesnt change much.
Any who i know it was from the family that made it worse for me but its not their faults.
But if they tell me to go home until im better ill let everyone know. other than that i saw how some people were posting about the airport screenings and stuff well i have a story..
Alright i went to walmart to look at cameras "bought a nikon L110 online instead of waiting, but hasnt got here yet :( " and i had drank a coke and my bag starded filling up slowly with gas well a someone who worked there thought i was hiding something under my hoodie and asked is i was shop lifting, i didnt hear him because i had headphones in, i walked away not knowing he was asking me stuff and what not well he grabbed my arm and that caught my attention, after taking out my headphones the guy said he was asking me if i was shop lifting, i looked at him and said "well ill show you what i have if you just go away and act like nothing happened, he looked at me kinda angry. I flashed him my bag and he just stared and i laughed." he said sorry but i told him no sweat because i mean if you saw a teen how looked like he was hiding something wouldnt you question him/her? he was just doing his job and i respect that, plus its kinda fun to weird out people by showing it.
I think because im at that age i just dont mind it as much.

I hope you get better. Let us know how the surgery goes if you have it.

As far as the Wal-Mart incident goes they can't ask or accuse you of shoplifting without you having something on you. I know that because I used to work for wal-mart loss prevention. You have to see them take it from the shelf, conceal it and walk out with it. If they didn't have the item on them when they walked out, you get fired.

oh that's too bad this vicious virus had to attack you just now, when you're surgery date is finally here... ): but yes, i bet they can't let you go into surgery in your condition, it can't be good. i hope you recover from this soon and they don't postpone your surgery for too long.

now that was totally hilarious about the shop lifting LOL :D

I am sorry to hear about the cold/flu. I am sure that they will schedule you in, again, ASAP.

As to the Wal-mart incident...good for you to just laugh it off! And I agree with Brian...they cannot accuse you just because you have that "look".

Hope you are feeling better soon

good luck tomorrow, if you get to go!

and your shop lifting story, hilarious!
they are right though, unless you walk out of the store, with it, you haven't done anything illegal. Most companies actually have policies that employees aren't allowed to accuse or go after a suspected shop lifter, for safety and legal reasons.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!

     Good  luck today.  But if you are sick, I doubt very much they will operate.  I know my surgeon would not.
     You're right, you most likely caught it from your sick relatives.  You needn't be in the same room with them.  If the germs are in the house, they are airborne.

I hope your surgery went well. You have patience, if the Walmark incident happened to my hubby, I would have gone off on Walmart and probably file a lawsuit, LOL. Take great care!
