April 28, I have to go in for another procedure, to fix what last year's didn't fix. Hopefully it will.

This time I have to be inpatient for 6 days. I am very apprehensive to say the least.

The good part is that I have researched the Doctor, and he is one of the absolute best. Even though It will cost me more out of pocket than someone else, it is worth it to me, and I am extremely thankful that I have the means to make that choice.

 

Probably won't be healed in time for Cayman, but perhaps Roatan, or Bonaire (still gotta freedive the Hilma!)
 

Any prayers/vibes/healing energy/etc. are appreciated as always.


Cheers,
Teresa,

Do not be concerned with a tummy scar....    I was born with one (and everyone I know has one also.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Well.... I guess it didn't instantly become a scar....   I'm talking about your navel !  )

Exam this morning shows everything is fine.
Result was better than expected.

Still have a ways to go in the healing department but I should be dive ready by early June.

11 days on, and I continue to heal nicely. If I continue on this path I will be better than new in a few months!

Thanks everyone for your prayers/vibes/etc. :thankyou:

In the range of outcomes, mine was at the top or slightly higher. IOW even better than the Dr.'s expectation.

This is the best news I have had in over a decade! :cool1:

Great news girl! Congrats!

 

Now just to be clear...since we are 11 years old...I would say this is the SECOND best news you've had in a decade! ;)
