The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

Thanks specialK. I have a couple of groups that I meet for lunch & just couldn't remember which we did. I'll need to keep an eye on time b/c I have to get to Clearwater for a celebration of life later in the afternoon, but really looking forward to seeing everyone.

Just came back from my post-op and I have to leave the drains in for at least another couple of days. My surgeon does not want me driving other than to run to the store, etc. so I am not going to be able to come to lunch on Saturday. I am really bummed. I was so looking forward to seeing everyone again!

If by chance both drains stay below 30cc between now and Friday morning, I might be able to run back to Orlando Friday afternoon to have them taken out but he wants them below 30cc for at least 2 consecutive days. Doesn't give me much time!

I'll let you know one way or the other on Friday.

snickersmom - drains are a pain, right? No worries on whether you can make it or not - we will have another in short order! Just take care of yourself - that is what is important.

kira - ditto to you - I am so sorry you have the flu and are not feeling well. We will have another meet up soon, no worries.

I will leave you both on the list pending assessment later in the week - just let me know so that we won't be worried on Sat if you are not there yet.

Thanks. My numbers seem to be going up instead of down so I'mgoing to lay low tomorrow and Thursday and maybe that will help!

DH and I want to go to the carpet place at Wiregrass so if I can't come by myself for lunch with you all, we might come down together on Saturday. If we do, I will definitely make sure I at least stop in to say hello to everyone. Either way I will keep you posted.

Kira/Lee7/TWills - so sorry can’t be with us. I think we will do another one real soon since there are several who can’t make this one. TWills, hope your surgery goes smoothly

Still have these stupid drains in and can't drive that far, so I will have to miss tomorrow. I'm hoping he will take them out on Monday but both sides are still above 30cc, so not sure.

Have fun tomorrow and I'll plan on seeing you all soon at the next get-together!

snickers - we missed you, hope to see you next time and that the pesky drains slow down so you can get them out asap!

As always, really enjoyed our lunch and having the opportunity to commune with all of you!
