I do appreciate the time you took to write the reply; however, I don't feel that is the right answer. I am a professional - although not in the medical field - and don't feel that "just loving her" is enough. This is a serious health factor that she needs to take care of. At times she is depressed, and really, I cannot blame her. She is not psychotic.

What are some steps she can take with regard to the surgery?

Anyone?
