Teneeshia, I will say a prayer for you tomorrow, and for Dr. Babineau, too. You're in good hands. I know you're nervous tonight, and tomorrow night you'll just be tired, but you'll be so glad that it's done and you can start this new phase of your life. God bless you, and post as soon as you can to let us know how you are.

I wishing you a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. God has the power/ability to pull you thru. Say that and believe it, it will happen. Remember the power of the spoken tongue. When you are able update to let us know how you are doing?!
In God's Love,
The Will to Win by Berton Braley If you want a thing bad enough To go out and fight for it, Work day and night for it, Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it, If only desire of it Makes you quite mad enough Never to tire of it, Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it, If life seems all empty and useless without it And all that you scheme and you dream is about it, If gladly you'll sweat for it, Fret for it, Plan for it, Lose all your terror of God or man for it, If you'll simply go after that thing that you want With all your capacity, Strength, and sagacity, Faith, hope, and confidence, stern pertinacity, If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt, Nor sickness nor pain Of body and brain Can turn you away from the thing that you want, If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it, You'll get it.
Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! I am post-op Laparoscopic RNY; my surgery was on 5/24/05. Anyway, I will be praying for you, and I know you will come through surgery with flying colors. Pretty soon, you will be a big ol’ loser!! I’m not going to tell you that the first few weeks after surgery will be a bed of roses because it was pretty bad for me. But today, I feel fine and the only thing that I regret is that I didn’t have surgery in 2004 when I first started researching it. So, if you find that you’re having a hard time coping right after surgery, please know that it DOES get better. Don’t ever hesitate to email me if there is anything I can do for you – even if you just need a pep talk! So here’s to you… may you have a successful surgery, improved health, energy galore, many “wow moments”, and fabulous before-and-after pics! God bless! Hugs, Tracy
God bless you and is with you and will be with you during this big step in your life. As long as you remember that and let him remain in the driver seat all will be well. I AM a living testimony.
God be with you
