Update from Mandie:
[quote]For those that have been asking Today has been pretty good. Been getting sleep and able to eat pasta and sauce with out too much pain. I alreasy have my living will done, which they wanted me to have done since it is a major surgery. I chose my burial site (National cemetary in Quantico, VA). I have also decide to write "just in case letters" to a few select people. That seems to be the hardest and haven't done it yet. This may seem morbid, but I would suggest that everyone have a living will and discuss your wishes with those closest to you. I am not worried about anything happening, but I am at peace if it does. I just can't wait to go for a run, play my guitar, eat a steak, and go watch some great local music with my amazing friends :) Please thank everyone for me. It means the world![/quote]
As you can see, guys, this is the real deal. Thanks to all for your support.
