  1. Happy belated birthday! 106 pounds lost is amazing!
  2. Fortunately, I switched doctors and had a revision May 7.
  3. I ate refried beans with cheese just yesterday. It was heavenly!
  4. I had a JP. It was removed before I was discharged. I do have moderate drainage from the site and change dressings twice a day.
  5. I returned from hospital yesterday, May 10. Everything went well and I'm tolerating full liquid diet. I am on oxygen supplementation until my postop appointment with D. Pettine.
  6. Surgery went well. I'm surprised at how little pain I have. I did have oxygen problems, so I'm presently on oxygen, trying to wean from it.

  8. I'm on my way to hospital. Surgery at 0730. Yay!
  9. I haven't told my family yet, though some know I was researching it. My work family know and have been completely supportive. In fact, they are taking me out May 3 for my last meal.
  10. I'll be with you in spirit tomorrow. I imagine many of us will. Please keep that in mind as you drift off to sleep.
  11. Looks like I didn't complete my thought, but it did generate reassuring advice. My excess weight is threatening my life, so I'm willing to take the surgical risk. And it will be great fun to select pretty clothing...not just what fits.
  12. Good luck, and let us know how good it feels to be on the losers bench!
  13. I'm beginning to feel anxiety. My imagination is running away with.
