Rosie and combat, sorry about your losses.
Lildago, I'm hopeful that your aunt will feel a lot better after this surgery. They can do great things with hearts nowadays!
Star, I'm so happy that your 'thing' went away, but that is weird isn't it? See what positive thoughts and prayers can do?
My whine for now--I feel almost 100% better after my hysterectomy, but now, 4 months later I'm having some weird bleeding (sorry to be graphic) that shouldn't be. It was only one day to start with, I went to the doctor and she saw nothing. Now it's doing it all the time, so I've got to get an ultrasound. I just hope I can get it repaired the same week I get my carpal tunnel "done"; I don't think it's anything major at all, but I don't need to miss a bunch more work right now. Just a pain in the butt, and I'm tired of having to go to a doctor of some type almost every other week.
I promise, I'm not a big baby, I've just had several things go wrong the past couple of years. Seems one thing gets better another pops up. I'm hoping for a break soon!
