I haven't decided whom or where yet. I have decided on the roux-en-y. Which procedure are you having? I live in York co, but work all over the state. Our office is moving to Gervais st this month in the state museum. Which dept do you work for? I'm in Columbia from time to time maybe we can meet someday.
I am going to Dr. Aceves on August 5th in Mexicali. I did a great deal of research before selecting him. He is not the cheapest surgeon there, but I wanted the best I could find. I will be in the hospital three nights and have three leak tests. Here, I would have paid $20,000 to $25,000 for one night in the hospital and one leak test. The cost of surgery with Dr. Aceves is $8,750. I am in Columbia.
Which MD are you going to see? I think that's what I'm going to do as well. Any help/advice is appreciated. Where are you in the state?
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves -- Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?Actually, who are we not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people do not feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others.
