Well heck yes 2011 is gone and it is now 2012!!!!  That is good for everyone because we are looking at the prospect of many new things for the upcoming new year.  And for me, I am hoping that it will mean better health and not so many operations!!!  One can hope can't one?

Now of course no one can know the future, and I am certain that I really don't want to know what is in store for me health wise but!!  I am wishing for no new operations and the opportunity of having some form of planning for my upcoming year, rather than checking in with the doctors and seeing what their schedules are like for the things that I will need....

Now I don't think I should jinx myself with that kind of a resolution, since I have little to do with its outcome, so rather it will just be my wish for 2012.

So where ever you come to me as a reader, I wish for your health and prosperity for this new year as well!  And I know some of you are facing your own health issues and procedures in this new year, but for sure here's to quick and successful outcomes!

I know from experience that after 7 or 8 times under the anesthesia, that there is and will be life on the other side of these procedures............
