Hello my OH friends,

I just got the call from Meaghan @ St. Joseph's Hamilton and she said there was a cancellation spot for me...

I am having my surgery Friday September 15th @ 8 a.m.

I start 1 week of Opti tomorrow.

YESSS

I actually cried when she told me . I had literally just left my family doctors office for my annual physical {dread }. I gained 16 pounds since April when I was weighed at my nurse appt. I walked out of her office feeling defeated, and then my phone rang. As soon as I saw private number I knew what was about to happen. I am so excited and scared at the same time.

I thought I had months to prepare, not a week.. lol

I need to calm down lol

Congratulations!!! Yahoo!!! I got mine on a cancellation and had 2 weeks plus 2 days. I had plans that night with girlfriends, so I celebrated with them that night, and family the next. Then... Opti for 2 weeks.

It felt like a bit of a whirlwind getting myself ready. I also thought I would have more time to prepare. But it was great and here I am 5 days post op.

You got this!!!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.

I can/can't imagine what it's like to be on the other side of this difficult process, but I know one thing for sure . If it wasn't for members like you sharing your successes, and struggles this would be sooo much harder for me to get through. I am cheering for you, and I thank you for sharing .
