I just realized that 3 weeks from tomorrow I will be banded. OMG - 3 weeks!!!
It didn't seem so close last week when they told me that October 2nd was open. But now when I look at the calendar, it just seems so soon. If my doctor was one to require pre-surgery liquids, I'd be on my last week of real food!
I'm not one of those people who have been thinking about surgery for years. I honestly didn't think I would ever do it until I was exhausted and sweaty from lugging my 6 month old (now 10 month old) into daycare every day. He is the reason I want to be thin. I want to be able to chase him while he is young, not be the awkward fat mom at school functions, and live long enough to be a grandma to his kids. I have made this happen very quickly in just 4 months and for some reason today the quickness just seems overwhelming. I'm not backing down just having a freak out moment here at work!
I can't imagine what Lynn (http://blubberyblogger.blogspot.com/) went through finding out that her sugery would be in 2 days! Although, maybe that would be better than knowing in advance. That way you only have a couple of days to freak out. Kudos to Lynn though, she is doing great already. I hope Dr. Enochs can do my surgery through the bellybutton, too!!
