    Please keep my wife in your thoughts today. She is having some surgery, and even thought the procedure itself is not a big deal, she will be going under general anesthesia, so whenever that happens, there's risk involved that the patient won't wake up.

    Say a little prayer for Mrs. RTL, my Trish, that everything goes smoothly. Thanks guys and gals!

    I'll report back tonight and give you guys the results...

    We got home about an hour ago. Everything went perfect during the surgery, no issues whatsoever. She's in a ton of pain (but the percocet is helping) but they said the worst will be tonight when she's trying to sleep.

    Squeemish people may not want to read below:



    She had a pretty major Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). She lost alot of weight over the last year and had irritation from the excessive skin around her abdomen. They removed about 5 lbs of flesh and fat around her hips and waist. She got cut from hip to hip just below the navel, they removed the excess, seperated the skin from the tissue below on the abdomen, then stretched that skin down over the area where the excess was removed from. Got all that? Imaging removing your underwear then pulling your shirt down to cover your package, pretty much same thing. Procedure took about 2 1/2 hour w/ a hour recovery time. Longest 2 1/2 of my life.

    I know I don't need to say it, but I will anyways:

    Thank you all, from the bottom of both of our hearts, for all your prayers and well wishes. Today was a very trying time for her, and to a smaller degree, me, but reading this had made all that go away. Again, this is why I love you guys so very much.

    **** hugs forum ****
