This surgery has been performed so many times that they have pretty well perfected it.

When I am concerned about something I remind myself that because God is in control instead of me, everything is going to be A-OK. I pray that God comforts u.

Oddly, I work at a place near Rogersville (no names) there are 22 employees, etc....we have known for three weeks that this has been coming. I have yet to receive the VERY FIRST well-wishing nor good luck nor anything else of any kind.

They all go to church, they all form hate groups and you can ask them the most elementary of questions regarding the bible.

They don't know it, but when I return, I will have accepted the position with another firm. No hard feelings. It's absolutely sociopathic in every form.

Actually I've done lots of praying and we have met with the doctor, the anesthesiologist and the RN... My anxiety level has dropped down put of the sky. Dad too... Now I'm actually so comfortable that I'm sleepy.
