Jun 23, 2009So close and yet still so far! Today, 06/23/09, my family and I left for Birmingham for my WLS scheduled for06/24/09. I had to attend a nutrition class @ 8:00 a.m. and after that I was scheduled for my lab pre-op and last but not least my pre-op with Dr. Schmitt. Everything went like clock work and we were just about to leave the doctor's office, when my sister just happen to mention that she noticed that my urine from the night before was very cloudy (I could have killed her). Dr. Schmitt immediately said, "no surgery", if there is an infection. He sent me back to the lab for a urine test and then we were to go back to his office and wait for the results. They called us back to a room and the doctor came in and sure enough I have a very bad UTI. So, surgery has been postponed for a future date. Not sure of when that will be, but will keep everyone informed. Since we had not checked into the hotel yet, we just came back home and look forward to making the trip again soon. Please keep me in your prayers.
