    dear Mikie,
    I just cought up with what you've been going through. I give you a lot of credit for doing it. I have watched the "Extreme Makeover" show a couple of times, and I don't think I'd have the nerve to do that. The women do come out looking incredibly good, though.
    I looked at you pic, also, with your two beautiful Chows, and I think you looked fine. But more power to you!

    Thank you so very much for such kind words. I didn't have the "Full Monte," just a neck lift, eyelid lift, and the skin all around my eyes laser resurfaced. The laser causes burns to the skin and it peels off. This takes about three weeks and then the skin is red for weeks after, but makeup can be used to cover the redness.

    Fortunately, I do not have a lot of wrinkles, so I am hoping this will do it for me, at least for a few years. I just want to look refreshed when I try to return to work. I looked very tired from being so sick with my illnesses for so long. I just hope the results are worth all this.

    Thanks again for you good wishes.

    Love, Mikie
