tomorrow's appointment

i've been so busy with a sick baby (damn ear infections) that i haven't had much chance to think about my upcoming appointment or blog about it. tomorrow is my pre-op results visit and hopefully the day we will schedule my surgery. i am so ready to quit talking about WLS like it is some far off distance land. - in my best veruca voice "i want it now!"

last night my mother-in-law was talking about WLS and that her doctor had recommended she go to a seminar on the lap band. now, even though she doesn't have as much weight to lose as me, i really think she would be better with GBP instead of the band. - why you ask ?? - i just don't think she is committed enough to be able to work the band. for example, she had knee replacement surgery over a year ago and didn't do all of her physical therapy so she still has a bad limp. i think she would have it taken out after a few months because it would require too much from her. at least with GBP as long as she ate in small doses - she could eat whatever she wanted and still lose weight.


  1. Finally huh! Let us know when you get a date - good things are about to happen :)

  2. Good luck tomorrow- hopefully your date will be soon! I remember a time where it seems Cate had ear infections every few weeks - they are awful.
    Let us know your date tomorrow!!

  3. Ahhhhh!!! Me too, me too! I have been waiting for tomorrow's appt. like I did my sons' births! I just told my husband that I am so excited I can't stand it. I am hoping and praying that I will get my surgery date tomorrow as well. Fingers crossed! Maybe I'll see you there ;).

  4. good luck gettin' the date!!!! The countdown is fun!
