Well, I have both of my neices' birthdays, a physical from my PCP, anesthesia clearance, 2 support group meetings, 2 local area DSers gatherings, and 3 apointments with the lab (I am participating in a clinical study, and they have to do a bunch of tests pre-op to get a baseline). I'll be plenty busy to pass the time!

Hi Jill - That is awesome! I'm so happy for you. Please do keep us updated. Also, congrats on the wedding - when did you get married? What an exciting year for you.

BTW, do you know you were the first person who chatted with me on 3FC? Good to see you back!
