Today I wore the purple angora scarf of our first meeting, in honor of your big day. I hope all goes as well as possible. I smile to think of the chorus going up in your behalf today.

Praying for all of you who are the closest to her as much as I pray for her. You need strength as well…

Prayers for Alison being said in NJ. My old high best friend had the same surgery a long time ago and is as active and lively as can be. Hopefully, you’ll be that way soon too!!

My prayers for all of you, and that all goes well. Here’s a bit of humor for when she comes out of the anesthetic:
Tech support: What’s on your monitor now, ma’am?
Customer: A teddy bear my boyfriend bought for me.

Comment by Don Meyer 01.30.09 @ 5:29 pm

There with you in spirit.

Comment by Lene 01.30.09 @ 5:29 pm

Hey Alison,
Hope you wake up feeling good! I knew someone who had the surgery when he was 10 and he said it changed his life. No more pain. I wish the same for you!


Comment by Robin 01.30.09 @ 5:47 pm

Bless you Allison for a safe,speedy and uncomplicated recovery. Don’t be afraid to speak up, ask questions, and people identify themselves and their purpose. And and make sure anyone who approaches you has washed their hands, that the medical staff wears gloves when peaking at your dressing/incision site. And make sure

Comment by jackie 01.30.09 @ 5:50 pm

Yes! It feels like a new beginning…hurray!
Oh, thank the Lord, thank the Lord! 🙂

Comment by Toni Smoky-Mountains 01.30.09 @ 6:04 pm

Good luck, Alison!

Comment by Joyce 01.30.09 @ 6:12 pm

Here’s another joke for Alison when she feels up to it and needs a laugh. President Obama promised his girls a dog, but it needs to be one of the breeds that are less likely to cause allergy problems. They’ve narrowed the choice down to a Portuguese Water Dog or a Labradoodle. A labradoodle, is, of course, a cross between a labrador retriever and a poodle. This particular cross is usually very healthy and good natured. A local breeder was considering crossing the Portuguese Water Dog with a poodle to see if it would produce dogs with the same hybrid vigor. But he gave up the idea when he realized that no one would ever want to admit that their dog was a Portapoo.

Alison, I’m praying that your surgery is extremely successful, and that your recovery is swift and easy.

Comment by Rhonda from Baddeck 01.30.09 @ 7:22 pm

(To the tune of Off to See the Wizard)

She’s off to loose her colon!
That moth-eaten tissue of pain.
And then she will be healthy and well again!
And knitting and blogging and eating again!
She’s off to loose her colon!
And never have Crohn’s pain again!

Richard, Mom & Dad, the Surgeons and of course Alison. All have been in my prayers today. Please ALL be well for Alison’s sake!

Love & Hugs & Prayers,
