    Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. I can not comment on the surgery as I do not know what all they did. They did not call my friend that she knew of - no message or caller ID to say they called.

    While in the hospital I asked everyone who can in to see me they was done and all I was told is I need to ask my Dr when I see him because they weren't there. My appt. for staple removal is Sept. 25th.

    I do know they removed the hardware because I rec'd it all in a jar so I can make my shadow box with all of it from past surgeries.

    I am in a lot of pain and can't sit for long - I am suppose to have nurses care but still haven't heard when they are coming. I'll write in as I can, thanks again, Deb
