    A little bit of Magic in my life
    A little bit of Bonesmart by my side
    A little bit of Surgery is all I need
    A little bit of Waiting is what I see
    A little bit of Flying in the sun
    A little bit of Sleep - all night long
    A little bit of Time left here I am
    A little bit of good mojo..for the Man!

    How's that? :dubious:

    Well it's your fault for putting that in my head all morning!

    I am really praying that the weeks go quickly as you deserve to be on the healing path for good.
    That positive spirit will get you through this.

    Aww, that's unfortunate. It's better to be safe, than sorry and suffer a repeat.
    Hopefully the next ten days move quickly for you. We'll be here waiting for the good news.
    Best wishes for a nice weekend!

    Happy Saturday!
    Hope you're hanging in there. You're such a trooper.
    Is Monday the big day? I'm losing count as it's changed.
    Sure hope it's this week.
    Will be thinking of you.

    Wonderful news, Greg! I'm happy and excited for both you and your wife.
    February 8th is not far off.
    Prayers will continue for perfect healing. I have faith you will have your happy ending.
    Keep us posted. Pretty home you live in, by the way.
