Wow! Where has the time gone? I was denied by insuracne company 2 years ago. I have been trying to diet and excercise on my since. Obviously not successfully. I have began the process once again. I have met with the surgeon and dietician. I will have my psch eavaluation on 12-30-10. I am excited about the meeting that I had with Dr. Byrne. He was wonderfully supportive.

I have been playing phone tag with my patient coordinator about my counseling approval. I finally made the appointment for my surgery Consultation today. It will be Next Wednesday!!!!! I cant wait!! Also I am scared. I have a million "Good" questions but I do not want to seem like a OCD person. I will keep up with this site and the message boards and I feel like all will be GREAT!!!
The next step for me will be the insurance!! Please pray for me!! I will keep my Blog updated better!

The next step for me is to get the CPAP MAchine in the next few days. I am worried about the machine to be honest. Cost? Is My family going to fear me??? I know these ??'s seem stupid with the Questions that have also been answered with this study. I guess the most important thing is to think positively and One day at a time.
I also had blood work done a few weeks ago and all of my levels are good.
I am planning to continue with my counselor until march and beyond, and then I will meet with my surgeon!

I arrived at my appoinment time 9:30pm. I finally got hooked up and in bed around 11:45 pm and had to be gone by 5:45am! Yeah what fun! When I went to sleep I had nothing but sensors, When I woke up I had the sensors and a CPAP machine on!
We Will See.

I also met with my PCP today. That went well. He feels that the recommendation of the counseling is their way of weeding out the ones that may or may not suceed after the surgery. I am not really sure about that. But he says that he is sure that I will be a sucess story. He referred me for a sleep study. It is scheduled for 1-10-07 (the day after my birthday). I am kind of nervous about the sleep study, but also curious. He also drew blood today to check blood, thyroid, etc.
Now we wait some more.
