All I can say is WOW! I just read about your journey from beginning to now and talk about being stubborn and persistent! I can't say that I would have fought it out like you did. I'm a minute person! You are doing a tremendous job and one you should be extremely proud of. I'm on day 8 of the preop liquid diet and my surgery is just a little over a week away. Congrats to you again on a job well done!
