Congratulations on your surgery JoDee! You are going to rock the band! I am praying that your surgery is uneventful and followed by a lifetime of success and improved health. You have already done a HUGE thing to improve your health by giving up smoking - WAY TO GO! - on that. I look forward to hearing about your MANY wow moments as you progress through your WLS journey. Take care darlin' and welcome to the loser's bench!
