What's New With ME!!!

Jun 05, 2009

Hello all,

I thas been a minute since I posted on here, but I would like to catch everyone up to waht has been going on with me.  My husband made it back at the end of March and since things have been going craaazy!!!  My first surgery date was scheduled for July 13 and then I got moved up to June 17th.  Yeah that is like 11 days to go I know it is not long at all.  I am the first to go in that morning I have to be at the hospital at 5:00 a.m.  I am starting to get nervous now.  I know that I am doing the right thing and God is with me all the way!!!  I know he has not brought me this far in life to leave me now!!!  A lot of things have changed for meover the last couple of months, I have started working online with the University of Phoenix teaching classes online, I'm in the training right now. 

I always want you guys to know all my firends on here I have not forgotten about any of you and I appreciate all of the encouraging words from each of you, things had just gotten crazy in the preparation for my husband returning and my surgery.  My doctor would not let me do the surgery until my husband came home becaue he wanted to make sure I had someone to help me witht he kids. 

I am so ready to embark on this new adventure in life.  Although I used to be smaller I am thnakful that I am getting a second chance to be HEALTHY!!!  I am so excited that I willnotbe tired and out of breath anymore from running around with the kids.  If anyone would like to get in contact with me please do email me privately and I will give you all of my information.  My husband is taking a week off work and my mom is coming up for a week.

Please keep me in your prayers as all my OH friends are always in mine!!!

The silliest things are the ones that worry you!!!

Well if it wouldn't have been for a good friend I would've never known that the waiting list skipped righ tover my number so I have my official appointment to meet with the surgeon on Tuesday.  I've heard that from there it only takes 2 months which means I will be having surgery as soon as my husband gets back from deployment.  I am banking on the first week in April because I can't do it before then b/c I do not have any help what so ever.  I know it is odd I am going through a lot of things right now and I have a multitude of family who is just not there so I depend on my friends a lot.  I will post on Tuesday with updates of everything that I need to have done and what the surgeon said!!!!  Hopefully I will get my surgery date on Tuesday I think that is when I am supposed to get it.

Stay Blessed!!!

Moved to VA

Sep 23, 2008

Well, I moved to Virginia and have changed docs. I did not know the process was going to pick up so fast.  We bought a house and now I have already started my process with Dr. Mann.  My hubby just left for deployment, I am contemplating having the surgery before he gets back if the opportunity presents itself.  I haven't made up  my mind  yet.  I guess I will just have to wait and see.  I know I am doing right thing for me because everyday I look in the mirror I know that this can not be a healthy lifestyle me being this heavy.  So now I just wait until I get called by Dr. Mann's office.  He said normally after the initial visit with him you get a surgery date within two months maybe faster if you have everything done like I do.

scheduled all of my test

Jan 29, 2008

Well, I went to PCP on Monday and she got all of my referals ready that same day I was amazed that she did it that fast.  I was even more amazed that I got all my appointments scheduled before the end of Feb.  I did not expect for things to move this fast but I am kind of glad that they are.  This is an amazing experience and I feel so blessed to be able to have such support from my family members and close friends.  I also have a great PCP that is very helpful.

met with dr. ryder

Jan 27, 2008

Well, I finally met with Dr. Ryder she was very nice but I was very nervous.  She explained both surgeries with me the lap band and RNY and told me I didn't have to decide Thursday but Ineeded to decide soon.  Everything was just so overwhelming I can't believe I have let myslef go like this.  It didn't help any that I had been sick and on steroids a week before my appointment, the weigh in was such a crusher.  I go to my PCP today to start the requirements to get approved through TriCare.  I am praying that I am doing the right thing for me and my family.  I do have two small girls to think about.
