One Year

Nov 10, 2009

Wow... One year ago at this time I was worrying in the waiting room at Barix in Yspilanti Michigan.  I was still unsure if I was doing the right thing or not!  Putting my life in a sugeons hands, all to lose a few pound... was it worth it?  HECK YA!!!! One year later, here I am 135lbs less, Less then 20lbs away from my goal weight and feeling absolutly fantastic!
I now can keep up with my kids, buy regular clothes in any store I choose and just feel GREAT!
I am so glad I made the decision to go ahead and have and RNY.
Special thanks to my family and friends who have been rocks in my life and helped me along the way!
Denis has been my number one supporter and glad he stuck by and tries to understand my "fatbrain"!
Life is definatly 100% better after RNY!!

Well first lets get up to date... Thursday I had my consult at Ypsilanti's clinic, all I can say... it was fantastic, amazing facility, every educated surgeon who you can talk to, defiantly a great experience.
He saw me, and I don't have to do any more testing, so as I was leaving the clinic, it was down to watch and wait for OHIP to approve my application.
I had a busy day, resting from our 6am-2am road trip (ok ok ok so we had to stop off for some walmart shopping in the states too... can ya blame us??) and appointments with my fiance... and I come home from all my missions for the day to a voice-mail from a lovely lady at Barix telling me that while I was there for my consult, they had received my approval from OHIP!!!!! I still have yet to actually have my copy but heck, as long as they have it, I couldn't be happier. 
So once DR POP signs me off from my consult yesterday, they will call me to book my post op and surgery dates!!! WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!

One step closer

Well let me get you up to date on me... I was worried my family DR wasn't going to sign my application to have my surgery done.  He's very old school and always kept telling me to go on weight watchers and all kinds of other diets, so I thought he would say the same thing when I asked about this.   I had my appointment friday, and he asked me lots of questions, why I don't want to have the lapband done instead.  After explaining I didn't have the $10 000 to spend on that, and I have heard lots of horror stories coming out about it now.  After lots of discussion and him asking me to keep him up to date about the whole procedure since he hasn't had a patient have one to date.  He signed my application!!! YAHHH
So friday afternoon I faxed my application into the ministry of health.
Today (wednesday) I got a call from them just explaining that I can't proceed without their approval or I would be responsible to pay the bill!
So my application is being processed and hopefully I will hear about it hopefully with in a few week!
