Default wow!

Thanks ladies!

I can't believe Dr. Boeree died. That's so terrible!!! He seemed so sweet just by what little I knew of him via e-mail.

Sandy I am glad you are on the other side, home and in recovery!

Laurie, yay, thank you! Hopefully your recovery is going well also!
I will look to see if you have more updates.

Countdown is on. I leave in 2 weeks! Here's to a successful recovery for us all!

Jules

Default Dr. Clavel

Hi Jules,

I got home last noc to Florida via Atlanta...soooo tired, but pain was easier coming home than going. I still cant believe my belly and incision rarely bother me!

I had my last visit Thursday and mentioned you are on your way, he just smiled and said he will be happy to see you.

You will do fantastic, I will keep you in my prayers, let me know how you are when you feel up to it.

Laurie

Default Made it!

I feel pretty darn good considering I had major surgery today. Dr. Clavel said I look great! I'll post details when I feel up to writing more. The experience thus far here at Quiron and with the staff has been wonderful. I made it to the other side in one piece with three new additions!

Jules
