Surgeon TestimonialAndrew Duffy, M.D.Dr. Andrew Duffy is the best!!! He is with Yale University Bariatric Surgeons - a center for excellence and he is in with Dr. Robert Bell. I went to the seminar on 12/8/06 and listened attentively to all they had so say. Needless to say when Dr. Duffy presented I just knew that this is the guy I was looking for to do my surgery - he knew his stuff and he was kind and sensitive to my questions. I was getting frustrated because I could not get an appointment for my psych eval prior to 1/07 and he was kind enough to give me the name of Mark Gaynor, LCSW and I got an appointment right away. My paperwork was all complete and in Dr. Duffy's office by 1/2/07. Since I did not get a call with an appointment by 1/3/07, the very next day, I decided to e-mail Dr. Duffy on our Groupwise system that we use at Yale and I said \"I am hoping God places it in your heart to read this e-mail - I need a date!!!\" and he read it - I got a call with a date four days after. I feel confident and I know that I made the right decision. The staff is great, Jane, his nurse manager was great - she had R&Y a couple years ago and looks great and she used to work as an OR nurse where I work which is part of Yale too.
- Artist/Muralist - I paint the most beautiful stills and christian art in acrylics on canvas
- Basketry - I love making beautiful dolls and gift baskets that are unique
- Hispanic/Latino - I was born in Panama, Republic of Panama came to US at age 24.

TOMORROW WEDDING ANNIVERSARY 18 YEARS -... on August 29, 2007 5:00 am
It seems like it was yesterday - I married my best friend, a rock, solid, dependable always there. I had two children - he had none - could not have any - and he accepted mine like they were his. For 18 years I have had breakfast in bed and I never asked for it and for 18 years I have had my lunches and my dinners prepared by him - I never asked for it. When I run around in the morning like a chicken with my head cut off and a royal grouch because I am running late my dear Al would look at my clothes and set up the ironing board and press them out if he sees any wrinkles and I never asked him to do this. He rubs my feet at the end of a workday and he brushes my hair (extensions and all (lol) and he calls me his virtuous woman. He has seen me pretty and he has seen me ugly. When I got all complicated the day after my gastric bypass surgery and they had to rush me off to the OR after administering several blood transfusions he stayed there with my kids being the strong pillar of support - my Al with his transplanted kidney and his little feet with all the tram flaps and the amputated toes that happened throughout the past 8 years of our marriage. My kids love him and so do I. We are a team and a partnership - three years ago we got a call at 2:00 a.m. from Yale Transplant Clinic - my husband had not had his dialysis for a few days, his shunts had shut down due to clotting problems, we were prepared for the worst - when the call came in that there was a kidney en route all the way for Kentucky - we had to rush to the hospital - the had to do all this workup on him - and I stood there looking at my husband soooooooo excited off his sick bed hopping down the corridors of the hospital in the wee hours of the morning heading up to the transplant floor because God our provider was about to bless him with a kidney to save his life - I was a nervous wreck - I stood through the hours of surgery and I prayed and I prayed and I prayed - he did not even spend the whole night in the ICU - he was sent to the floor and five days later he was released to home and today he lives to tell the testimony and he makes it a point to go the the Dialysis Unit and support and testity to all those who are still on the waiting list - that is my Al. We sent our kids to college - we worked hard and were responsible with our finances. We have had our ups and our downs but our love remains solid and stronger than ever before. When I got home from the hospital after my RNY - my stay was longer because of the complication and I got home with this horrible tube sticking out of my abdomen I could not walk - I was doubled over in pain, I had to sleep on the recliner for over a month and I could not reach to wipe myself it was Al who showered me and took care of me and for that and sooooooo much more that there is just not enough space to tell I love him. So happy anniversary to us for 18 years together - and if we count the three years we lived in sin (forgive us Lord) it is a total of 21 years!!!
Well, yesterday right after work I ventured out for the first time to Hot Yoga - shoot me somebody - I cannot believe that fully clothed and in my right mind I walked into this 110 degrees hot, steamy smelly place that certainly got hotter with the body heat of the humanity that was in there with their beautifully proportioned, slender bodies, for the instructor to have us wrap our arms around like a pretzel and hold them under our chin and try to choke ourselves while making this funny sound, the tip of the iceberg was sticking our arms straight out while holding our foot and bringing it up to touch our butt while all this steam is sizzling my brains - I felt soooooo out of shape and out of sorts I was on the verge of collapse, I set my mind to faze out mode and just kept telling myself in an hour it is going to be over, in an hour it is going to be over - it was the longest hour of my life and through all the trauma I stuck it out for the entire hour - but if you see me saying I will do this again just shoot me - I will stick to the regular yoga that is bad enough - I certainly left some of my brain cells back there when I came out I could not even think straight however when I got home I had the energy of a lifetime, I had some jello and cottage cheese for dinner and I painted and painted my happy heart away - check the canvases out. So I guess you have to suffer through hot yoga to feel good after but I will never do it again - ever. I will stick to room temperature.
Until next time.
Love and God Bless.

TOTALLY BLESSED - SPONSORED A STREET... on August 26, 2007 3:28 am
My D.H. and I helped sponsor a Youth Explosion Street Festival in an inner city high-risk youth community. We blocked off the street (with a permit of course) and brought God to the streets! I painted the little flags with the slogal JESUS GANG - B.A.D. (Blessed and Delivered) - my DH and I got an inflatable bounce house, the popcorn and sno cone machine - our church brothers and sisters donated the food, I did a paint workshop where we painted dolls and we also did beadwork, I painted a Quilt with a similar mural as the one I did in the church - check it out in the collage - I uploaded two collages - you can see me doing what I love to do best - LOVING THE PEOPLE!. We took the music and the praise dance to the street and best of all - all my nurse friends and myself donated our clothes that we could no longer wear to the missionary staff and set it up on the street for the people to just come take what they wanted. In a poor and underprivileged community infested by drugs, gangs, prostitution and crime out Street Festival reached out to the "Children of the Night" and the people just kept coming and coming. My Nurse friends were on the streets taking Blood Pressures and we ran in to a couple of soooooo high BP we had to do a few hospital referrals. I invited Ramon to be a guest speaker at our next year even and he accepted. The children had soooooooooo much fun and God multiplied the food and the clothes because it seems we gave out bags and more bags and it never ran out as a matter of fact it was replenished each time. I FEEL SOOOOOOOOOOOOO BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED OF THE LORD! We had preaching of the Word of God right there on the streets and we had souls tormented by their situations turn their lives over to God. At the end of the day - and I was on my feet all day - had my water and my protein shake and 2 oz of Rib Eye steak my husband did on the grill for me - at the end of the day I dropped 5 lbs - thank you God - I give God all the Glory and all the Praise - thank you Lord for waking me up today and thank you God for all my yesterdays - knowing what I know now and having you on my side - I will take my testimony to the streets each and every day!!!
