Hi Dr. Perez;

Diane and I have returned to Alaska, cold, cold here. Just a quick update. Diane and I are both doing very well, stronger by the day. I have already lost 22 pounds and feel great and Diane has lost 15 pounds. We will send you some photos. The pants that I wore to Cancun were tight on me, now the fall straight to the floor. We are passing along to our clients the information on the surgery and all of our positive experiences. Than you so very much. We will stay in touch.
