Thank you so much!!
I am soooo excited right now..as wrong as that might sound.
I will try to keep everybody updated from the hospital...I am going to call tomorrow and ask if I can use my laptop and if so is there wi-fi.

Once again...thanks for your thoughts!!

Thanks Chuck!
Dean and I are thinking of Bailey today and his surgery, and Sean is in our thoughts for his big day Wednesday! Dean and I have a LOT on our plate right now but I'm doing very well considering, and I told Dean that I will get him through it all no matter what comes our way. My thanks to all of my friends here!

Hi Sean,
I want to assure you that it is absolutely OK that you are so excited about your upcoming surgery. It is a big step and there is this possibility of you being able to get your life back. There is nothing more exciting than that after being in this kind of excruciating pain. The possibilities of what you may be able to do once your are fully recovered must seem endless to you - at least they do to me in my situation.

I am in the recovery process of my own Hybrid surgery performed on January 4, 2007. (I posted briefly a week or so after my surgery in the surgical outcome forum) I was so excited, not nervous at all about the surgery itself.

I do hope that your surgery is a success and that you are as happy as I am.

Dean,
Again, I am very sorry to hear all that you and your family are currently going through. As I said before, you are in my prayers and I am hopeful that you all will come through this with flying colors!


Good luck to you both and I'll be thinking about you on the big day!
Take care,
Andrea

Thanks for the well wishes, Andrea. Your point about getting you life back is what's getting Dean through his days, this week. All of you out there with this level of pain will sympathize with this... all Dean wants to do is feel well enough to take me and our two little guys to Chucky Cheese!

Sean,

Here is some more good luck coming your way on your surgery. I hope everything goes as good for you as it has me. SO FAR, it has been a pice of cake. You should be excited. As I have said before, you will not believe the mental relief you will have by getting this over with.

Physically you'll be fine too.

Best of luck

DJ
