Im a LOSER!!!!

Nov 29, 2008

Well I am home from having my surgery!!! It went amazingly well. No probs at all. The experience I had at Barix was amazing. I met so many nice people and wonderful nurses and staff!!! I weighed myself this morning ( saturday) and I am already down the 12 pounds I gained during surgery plus 3 extra pounds . I was 229 going in and came out 241 and today I weigh 226, Yeeehawww. I could do without this liquid faze but its only temporary thank goodness. I just feel the need to chew =S

Passed my PAT's

Nov 10, 2008

Well I passed my PAT's today. Everything went great, other then the fact that they found I have gallstones but the Internest said that it was fine and if Dr.Pop thinks they are bad he will just take my gallbladder out!! So in 2 weeks from tomorrow I will be back there and on my way to my new life!!! YAY

Meeting Dr. Pop

Sep 13, 2008

On Thursday Sept, 11th /08 My friend Stephanie and I drove down to the barix clinic to have our consult. What a crazy fun trip we had hehehe!! Well the consult was awesome, very informative and meeting Dr Pop was awesome. He gave me the go ahead to book my surgery as I have everything done that needs to be done!!! yay. He also told Steph the same basically, once her ohip approval comes in then she is ready to book. Well we came home and the next day Steph gets called from Barix and apparently while we where there OHIP faxed them her approval LOL. So everything is turning out perfect. I can't wait till this week to get my date =)

Getting somewhere

Well I am soooo happy to report that I got my approval from OHIP. It was sent to me by purolator on thursday Sept.3/08 so it took just over a week to get, although the clinic has not called to tell me they got it so I called them and they told me it should show up soon and if not to bring my papers with me to my consultation on the 18th. They should be able to book my surgery then and there also. I am beyond excited =) . My family is still not supporting me , well my husband and children are wonderful and supportive but the rest, not so much. Meh, what can I do?? Its my choice, and my body, i just wish they would understand why i want to do this!!!

All this waiting makes for no sleep!!

Well to start off with, my best friend is also having the same surgery as I am. She has had her consultation and has got her approval and surgery date all set for oct. 28th. I am so excited for her !!! I was really hoping that I could get the surgery the same time as her. I do not have a family doctor so it i was very very worried about not having a doctor to sign my OHIP papers, I ended going up the Emergency room and they told me up there that no doctor would sign my papers. I called around to some doctors and they all said "no due to not taking any patients" I was devastated. I ended up going to my specialist that deals with my fibro and he said he would sign it with no problem, and said he thought it was a great idea for me to have it. He signed my papers, sent me for blood work and even faxed them off for me. I was so elated and grateful to him!! Now I just play the waiting game to hear from OHIP if I am approved or not!!! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed and my legs if i could cross them LOL.
