Oh, Pookie! You've certainly been through the wringer. So sorry to hear about all your pain. You're one brave lady.

Hope all goes well with the surgeons this coming week, and that you can get started on the road to healing. :

Oh, ouch, ouch, ouch! I had a tiny hernia repaired and that was enough. You are in my prayers for a good recovery and for relief from that nerve pain. (((hugs)))
I was down to 199, but got back up to 280. Know what? No matter what my emotions, hormones and taste buds say, I won't ever give up!

Yup, we love Jiffy and Kimberley and definitely the pants.

Sounds like you haven't had much fun lately, Pookie. I'm glad you're back home, and hopefully you'll be feeling a lot better soon. Hope the pain meds are working well for you, and that you'll enjoy a speedy recovery!

What a nasty time you've been through, Pookie! Hope its all clear sailing from here on in and that your recovery is quick and painless (thank goodness for meds!) Get lots of rest and remember that as much as we want you back here, don't overdue it (I can't believe you even posted in your condition). Don't worry your sweet little head at all about any weight gain from surgery. Its not real!

Oh, I am so glad you are home and on your way to a full recovery. Just think, every day you'll get a little bit stronger and every day this whole thing will be another day further away.

(((HUGS))) and Prayers for a speedy recovery!
