  • Thanks to all of you - here at HCMA

    To all,

    You guys are great. Your thoughts & support over the last 5 weeks has been incredible and I can not express my appreciation.

    I (we-Barbara) will be in Dr. Lever's office on the 25th. You know the routine from there better than me. The big day is the 31st.

    I am staying very busy in my office getting things wrapped up. I am not as freaked out as I would expect (YET) THANKS TO ALL OF YOU.

    I will start a new thread before surgery. I will have the nurses wheel me into the computer room on the way back from post op to ICU. I'll let you know how it went. I should be ok to type as long as they don't pass the breathing tube through my right hand.

            We'll all be anxiously awaiting the good news following your surgery. You're going to do great! I would be extremely impressed if you are able to coax the nurses into letting you stop by the computer on your way to ICU. LoL. Perhaps Barbara can post until you are ready to do it yourself?

              Good Luck Stuart and keep us informed.
              Every great thing that has ever happened since the beginning of time has started as a single thought in someones mind.
              So if you are capable of thought then you are capable of great things
              Good luck and stay well.
