This is the email that I wrote the night before my surgery. I remember sitting at a blank screen for awhile and not knowing exactly what to write to my friends, family, and coworkers. I wanted to appear strong, but deep down, I was feeling scared and anxious. I had to keep reminding myself that everything would be ok and that I was in good hands with my doctors and that I had many people praying and thinking about me. I also had Maverick (the lab) and Macy (the chi) supporting me by wearing pink bandanas.
