I had no idea how hard it was going to be to get Kaiser and Belzberg to agree to that surgery. He'd only performed 2 or 3 prior to me. Bookfaery and I felt like we were blazing that trail! Kaiser made it so much more difficult that it had to be and Gary was very nervous about the long term ramifications of that surgery. He grilled me over and over about what I knew of the recovery and life-long commitment. It warms my heart to hear that you (and others I'm sure) were able to get the surgery as well!!! When did you have your surgery?
