I thought I had everything thought through before going ahead with the bypass. I never realize how my daughter would react. She had never in her life saw me thin even though prior to having her I was always thin. She was 9 when I had the surgery. The transformation had taken her back some that she had become distant. Knowing it was mommy but seeing mommy it was hard to compute for her. I will say now she says I love skinny mom because she's allot more fun! I can sit on a roller coaster with her!!! I don't get out of breath. Just giving food for thought! I think talking to the kids prior to the surgery is helpful. I did talk to my daughter but I don't think as much as I needed. Now she's stealing my clothes! She's almost 13 and loves skinny mom!!!!!
