I am going in tomorrow for my Roux-en-Y.....I have run the entire gamut of emotions so far... and they seem to be coming around again.  I am so excited that I am finally going to be moving forward with this part of my journey, but I am also worried that something will go wrong.... In just the past week I have had several people cringe and say "Are you SURE you want to do this?  I didn't know you couldn't reverse it!"  I just smile and say "Yes, I am going to do this" but then I get the stomach flutters again.  I guess it is probably normal to have the day before the surgery jitters, and I am determined to do this and get on with my life.... I guess I was just needing to get this off of my chest........ those of y'all who believe in the power of prayer, I would appreciate it if you would pray for me!

Y'all wish me luck!

 I think most of can relate to these pre-op feelings. I felt many of these same emotions. 

Make no mistake, it's going to be a challenge. There will be some pain. There will be some struggle to re-adjust - but in the end you will come out the other side a better person. A person who has taken control of their life. Many people never get that chance.
 Don't ask me how we lost to Baylor.  I can't figure it Out either!

Thank you!  I have been preparing for this for a long time..... I know that I will have good days and bad days, but, God willing, the good days will be plentiful and the bad days sparse..... I am thankful for the sage advice from all of y'all who have been down this same road!

Thank you, Tami!  This is so exciting to have you and talula216 and I all having surgery within a week of each other.... We can vent to each other, share our ups and our downs (which will hopefully be few!)

Good luck on your surgery and I will be praying for you as well!
