    Your very welcome!! We are all in this together.
  4. Thank you all, your messages made me cry. Thanks for caring. I am feeling better every minute but am feeling very hormonal and sad. I live alone so thankfully, I was well prepared and have all my provisions for food and healing. I am so grateful that surgery went well. I do feel very hungry and unsatisfied but I am sure that too will pass. Thanks so much for the support, I really need it.

Day Three Post Surgery-when do the hicups go away???

Day Two Post Surgery
