Gastric Bypass update

Too bad she's not a brunette

Nothing else to do except get My B.P.a little lower.As soon as that happens (with Meds.) I will have an appointment with the surgeon. Yippee!   I've had all the tests and consults required after the classes finished. I started this whole process in Oct.of 2011.I'm curious to see the total time between starting Kaiser's mandatory  3 month classes in Oct. and date of  surgery.Some people say it's almost a year -eeks please no,not that long.Above are some of the  worse photos of Me at my highest weight-only because I'm sure there's going to be the "after" photos eventually.Just promise you'll never show these photo's to any of My old H.S. boyfriends  ;  )wink

Hello Denise! Thank you for your visit to my blo again. I will keep your sweet kitty in my best thoughts at this sad time. I have been down this road before a number of times...most recent last August with my precious 18 year old Miss Peach. I hold you close...
Your tag has not arrived yet...mine will be in the mail to you this week. I wanted to mail it last week but our best friend was in hospital with bypass surgery...it has been a hectic time.
Keep yourself well and best of luck with all your dreams this year!

I just popped over from The Woodland Fantasy, beautiful blog. You too have a beautiful blog and I'm now a follower.
Both my parents had gastric bypass and it has totally improved the quality of their lives. As you know this is a major surgery and though you are wanting to move things forward a bit faster it is best to make sure all is in place for this life changeing event.
My thoughts and prayers are with you on this journey.
Have a great day,
Always, Queenie Believe

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
