and got us a hospital tray table for after surgery so we can sit in the recliner and have the laptop with us...

how decadent.

I also got a great cookbook for post WLS (that makes two now)
and a book on the psychological aspects of WLS...which when I looked closer I realized was WRITTEN BY THE LCSW of the practice we are with...

It's getting closer...:carrot:
