  1. Are you the sweet lady who lent me $10 when my purse was stolen? I was too stressed out to get your address and send a thank you with reimbursement.

    Thank you so much for all the help you gave me, in making this decision. Also the advice and answering my questions. Wow, it relieved a lot of my fears.
    I am making lists of liquids for postoperative and also for what I need to take.

    Just make sure you drink, drink, drink…whether that be water or gatorade. It does get better.
