One thought on “Bio

  1. Found your blog “Beating Jelly Belly” when I googled Dr. Yarrow McConnell! My husband (Bob) is just about to have his second ct scan after his MOAS! When Dr. McConnell’s office sent a PDF requisition to us for my husband’s blood work before the ct scan, the message indicated that Dr. McConnell has relocated to the United States! Lucky U.S.!!!! Unfortunate for Canada! Anyway, I thought I would Google her to see if I could find out where she went, etc. and found your blog. Read it from the start of your story to now. We live in Squamish and feel extremely lucky to have had Dr. McConnell to perform that MOAS!! Reading your story brought back what Bob went through. So happy that your story has turned out so magnificently! Hope ours does too. Cheers!
