  • Hey there girl,

    So sorry I have been sort of MIA for a bit i will post about that later.

    I am glad to hear that the docs found what they were looking for and will go in and fix it. Your so young and I think the Bypass will come of well for you....your a fighter and a trooper who has a great attitude and good spirit.....you amaze me !!!!! ;) O:) O:) You got the angels watching over you!!

    So the 18th of November is the big day? Do you know what time you will be going in? I want to remember to say a special little prayer for you just as your going in.....

    What a long long road...hopefully after the bypass things will start moving along they way they are supposed to and you will ba able to feel better and get some fusion going!

    I do think of you often and I am sure you get those messages and know that already...
    Much love hon and rest up for you surgery!
    How is your family holding up throough all of this? Good I hope.
  • Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Welcome back. I did miss you. I don't care if you were only gone for one day. One day without you is like a day without sunshine. :)))
  • Bypass - what Coronary Artery Bypass?

    OO I hope you'll be ok, sending you strong vibes (causing a storm around Cuba they are!!) to get better quick.

    I also hope this is the cause of your ongoing pains. xx
  • hang in there...sooner or later you'll be through with all of the latest medical/surgical issues and can begin to fuse. :) Terri
