My name is Karla and I am from a small town in northwestern Ok, I am married and have three wonderful children my husband and I have been married 23 years and he is the love of my life! My family is my joy and my strength. I am hoping to have wls sometime soon. I am 41 and have many medical problems with my heart, stroke, arthritis from back surgery and rum arthritis, and now diabities, I have struggled with my weight off and on for quite sometime. two and a half years ago I had a bad stroke making me dead on the right side and my weight went from 189 to 280 in this length of time . With lots of physcial thearpy and Gods help and healing powers I have regained alot from my stroke that they thought would never come back but it has!! I am still with a walker and weak on the right side but I am hoping the wls will help me. My cardioligist believes it will and the benfits out weigh the risk.. I have 2 pacemakers and a difubilator. so I really need to do this. I want to be healthier and I believe this will help me.
