I am trying really hard not to become discouraged.  It has been one year since I made the decision to pursue weight loss surgery.  I never considered going anywhere else for my surgery than Abington.  I am disappointed that it has taken so much time.  I feel like I am stuck waiting for my life to begin.  I am trying not to go crazy while I wait through the delays.  Will my day ever come?  Will there be yet another delay?  I talked to Toni from Dr. B's office and got the date of 3/17/08

I am enjoying some of the changes I have made last year in preparation for my new life after I am switched.  I changed jobs and now have weekends and holidays off.  Although I struggled at first, I now love the department I have joined and love the challenges it presents everyday.  The people I work with are amazing and I am so thankful to God for leading me in this direction.  I only work 8 hours a day compared to the 12 hour days I worked in my old position.  I can get my girls ready for school in the morning and I am home to help with homework and have supper with them.  I love it!  I have found a great family doctor that cares for my entire family and I am very grateful to her for the care she gives to each of us. 

I have made a conscious decision to keep my desire to have weight loss surgery to myself.  I have told only my husband and my sister in my personal life and plan to keep it that way.  Of course, working in the Surgical department where I plan to have my surgery, my coworkers are aware of my decision and very supportive.
