Gastric Bypass Poem i wrote...

Hey everyone, here is just a gastric bypass poem I wanted to share with you all, i hope you enjoy it. :)

-Steph

Captured by a picture, my plump butt sat still,
a secret plan to delete it would be such a thrill.
I wouldnt have to stare at the disgusting rolls of my tummy,
even though I knew all that food I ate was yummy.
I gathered up the courage to look into gastric bypass,
No longer would I be the reason for them to harass.
I saw all the things Id have to give up eating,
and laughed because there would be no more cheating.
No eating that doughnut when I said the last was the last;
not even if I did that throughout my whole past.
Only but an ounce to eat at the beginning,
but that is just fine because then Ill be winning!
The pounds will fall off like the ones I once ate,
and for once in my life my body will be straight.
No curvy here or rolls there,
Nothing but thinness everywhere.
I wouldnt be teased when that stupid chair breaks,
Just an oh that must be a faulty chair for heaven sakes!.
No being told I cannot fit in the seat,
for I have just won the race of defeat!
Into the surgeons office I pranced with a smile,
knowing that this surgery would be all worthwhile.
I filled out my papers in a jiffy,
They faxed them over to Anthem real quickly.
Youre approved said the lady in a bland tone,
YES, I love you! I screamed in her ear through the phone.
I sat in the hospital waiting to be brought back,
My surgeons were mixed up - such communication they lack!
The mix up was fixed and they brought me to my bed,
Oops! was the words I didnt want said.
Shed popped my vein and would try the other arm,
my goodness, I hope she doesnt do me more harm!
I slipped on my socks and off we went,
down the hallways to my special event.
Turning and twisting through hallways galore,
through the whole hospital Id thought wed explore!
Into a pre-surgery room I was rolled,
waiting for my big operation to unfold.
The surgeon came in and explain a few things,
then off to surgery lets see what this brings!
Into the room of scalpels and stitches,
I surely hope there are no glitches.
Instant freezing took over my body that day in November,
Anesthesia sent me into a nap I cant remember.
I woke up in recovery with a blur to my vision,
sweetheart, you cant touch your incisions!
As I started to panic the nurse calmed me down,
I lay there silent in my ugly gown.
They took me to my room and family came in,
and there my journey was about to begin.
Since my surgery Im down 53 pounds,
although it wasnt as easy as it sounds.
I am happy with my decision, something I do not regret,
its a life changing experience Ill never forget.
