Good to hear your fears have subsided. I hate Drs and the such so I know the fear that can be there even though there is no need for it. Take care and glad to see you here today again.

Hey there if it is any comfort to you I know several people that had this surgery done and everything worked out wonderful. May I also tell you the results where great for each and everyone of them and they now walk with so much confidence which is great to see. My mom went from a size 26 down to a 10 and has been there for 8 years :). I wish you lots of success with yours!

Well I don't know yet what it is and there is no talk of Surgery yet I am being tested first to see what the Problem is and then take it from there If I do have to undergo Surgery then yes I will be scared as I have Emphasimia and COPD but I will deal with it when I have to Thanks anyway lol as for the weight it is just the stomach that needs to go down lol

Good luck! I feel sorry you have had so many medical problems in the past few months. Hope this one gets taken care of. I am so lucky I have just had my two 6 month check ups from my cardiologist and internist and given such a clean bill of health I do not need to go back to any of them for a whole year.

I think your attitude is admirable. It´s very difficult to bear in mind and even more so to put into practice, but worrying yourself sick won´t change the results. You´re showing a lot of courage by going to all these examinations, which I know can be painful and sometimes even humiliating. I´ll be thinking about you and tons of positive thoughts are coming your way. XXX Dana

Do you know Sweet I think I have gone past the stage of caring right now as I know I can't do anything to change things any way and I still believe it is the Gall Bladder Also I am concentrating on my Son right now he is better but is still looking for a Job Big Hugs to you and you know you are special to me

I'm so glad that you're finally going to see this specialist on Monday, gabs. It can take such a long time to get an appointment. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. As I've mentioned before, I miss you here too, but know that you're keeping an eye on everyone. My kitty Anna Belle (in avatar) is getting ideas, and I think she's been taking notes. One of these days, she just may sneak on here, and then she and Gissi can have a wonderful time together. By the way, I will let you know when a good time would be (for a call), but am waiting to see how you're doing first. Take care.

I finally spoke to her on Friday, and mentioned that you're wanting to call her. She's been so busy, so hasn't been around here as much. She's going into work this afternoon, but may be home in the morning, and I know she'd love to hear from you. I'll let you know ASAP, and thanks. Big hugs to you too.

My dear Gabs! First of all I want to say Happy Mothers Day and I am so sorry that I did not get in here sooner but I had to work yesterday and by the time I got on here last night My Lot was not loading! Anyhow, I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you for tomorrow! I heard from someone yesterday that you were wanting to call me.... I'm really not sure what day would be best as we will be out pretty well all day today with my husband's birth mother and then Tomorrow my husband is off and I go into work for three.Tuesday I am pretty sure my parents are coming as it is their 38th anniversary and they want to be with us. Wednesday and Thursday I start at 1:30 and I always find that those mornings go so quickly! Thursday Morning my son's Therapist will be here with him and then Friday Morning I might be doing Laundry! That will be my week I think...I have had no time for anything lately with all of the errands and work etc. Just know that I love and I hope we can connect soon! ~Heavens~

Hope all goes well with the appointment and that you finally are able to get not only some proper answers but solutions to solve the problem as well. Hubby is having some trouble with his stomach as well, he's in pain and no matter how little he eats he ends up with a huge stomach. He has tests done last week and is going to see the doctor on tuesday. Hopefully they found out what the problem is and will find a way to make it better too. Have a wonderful weekend twin dear :):):)

Hello gabs!:-) It's really good to see you and hear from you and thank you for coming to tell us what's going on there in your life. I am glad to see you in courage and out of fear, that's how I perceive you, anyway. I hope and wish that your appointment on Monday brings a definitive answer to your problem and a very good one at that. You will be in my prayers and thoughts and I look forward to welcome you back. I think Gissi will enjoy in the meanwhile and will keep us informed! I wish you the best of whatever this life has to offer!:-)
