Default Good thoughts please

I am going for minor surgery tomorrow, one that the surgeon feels is not even worth doing but after talking with my neurologist, he has convinced her that this should be done to at least rule it out as a possible cause. So off I go tomorrow...will be a long day of travel and surgery....wish me good thoughts. Thanks

Default hi willow

i really hope everthing goes well with your surgery, and i wish you a speedy recovery.
i am guessing it's spinal surgery and not brain!
please let us know that you are ok when you can.
take good care.

Thank you all for the well wishes. The surgery went well and now I am just taking a few days to rest up a bit. I will keep you posted on how things go. I really appreciate all your positive thoughts sent my way this week.
