Hey Folks,

Especially those of you that just read and never comment. It's time to share your date of surgery and find a friend. My date with Doc Sawyna and the "Staple Gun" is scheduled for August 28th. What's yours?

How many of us do you think they do in a day?

Unless it's changed from last year, they normally do up to 4 surgeries in a day, at the most.

Mine was July 25, 2006 with Dr. Sawyna.

I get to see him again next Wednesday for gall bladder surgery.

Jim,
I think that's right...no more than 4 a day.

I am July 16th, just a few days away!
I know one person on that day...anyone else?

I wanna go first! Smile

Hi Lisa,

It was so nice to hear from you.  Since you are scheduled for surgery on the same day as me, you probably will be at the Team Meeting on July 16 (9:00 am)?  I am looking forward to meeting you.  Will you be at the Support Group meeting on July 11?  I will be seeing Dr. Holland in the morning; then go to the meeting at night. 

It is so much fun to check this forum and talk back and forth with everyone.  I think that I have become addicted to the forum.  It's the first thing I check when I turn on the computer in the morning!    Our "big day" will soon be here.  I am so excited about it!

Diana

I leave for a vacation tomorrow and won't be back until the 23rd.  I already had my team meeting and my last appt. with Dr. Holland is on the 25th.  I am so glad that I am going away so that the wait doesn't seem so long until the surgery.  Hopefully we will meet at the Aug. or Sept support meeting.

Dear Diana: Your big day is coming up and it will be here soon. Remember to think positively, have faith in the doctors, and follow all directions.  I am 4 days post op and my family cannot believe how well I am doing. Additionally, I have lost 15 pounds since the day of surgery!!!!!!

Hi Mel:  You are doing great!  It is so inspiring to hear all of the good results.  You are right about being positive, having faith, and following directions.  I feel very positive about the surgery and especially about my doctor.  My husband said that I should start practicing chewing, chewing, chewing.  I kinda eat too fast right now.  How are you making out?  I guess you don't actually start solid foods right away. 

Keep up the good work!  So glad that you are doing so well.  Keep us posted!

Diana: I think most of us eat fast because of our fast-paced lives.

I am still on clear liquids, but tomorrow I begin the full liquids. So tomorrow I get a few more

deliciousw00ttreats.  I am doing well except the back pain I have from not moving and lying a certain way in bed. That will pass though.

Trying to be my best everyday,
