That is SO cool, Sue! How did they get in touch with you? I mean, how did they pick you out of the thousands who've had surgery? Awesome.... I gotta hand it to you, keeping it to yourself all this time- I would've posted about it the minute i knew it was going to happen. Did you think people would figure out that it was you? It's a good article also- all those NY Times pieces were very well-written & truthful, I thought.

I was the one who wrote them, and so I had long followed Sue's posts.

I am SO SO glad you think they are good and useful. Approval from fellow UC-ers is very important to me.
