I will be 54 years old in just a few days and in one week I will have the RY surgery.  I am reasonably healthy although 11 years ago I did have a serious medical problem.  I have borderline high blood pressure, mild sleep apnea and high cholesterol.  My legs and feet hurt alot as my job keeps me on my feet all day.  My mother died at age 58 from heart disease.  Thank God my heart is still ok.  I want to have this surgery so that I can maintain good health, gain energy and be around to enjoy my friends and family for many more years.

I look forward to getting to know more people on here because I know that will help me on my journey to a healthier life and perhaps I can be of help to others.

 I have four grandsons and one granddaughter.
