I satarted this journey almost a year ago (Oct 2009) & it has been a long road filled with being poked & proded, having sleep studies where I felt like an alien with all the leads stuck to my head, stress tests, nutrition apointments, support groups, patient education seminiars- wow when you list it it's easy to see why it took almost a full year!! Well after all of that, the day has come! Today is the first day of the rest of my life. My surgery is scheduled for 12:30 pm and I have a thousand emotions swirling around inside.

Thank you a million and one times for compiling such an an amazing WLS source of info! Ok I'm rambling now- damn them for scheduling my surgery for 12:30pm!!!! I have to be there at 10:30 which leaves way too much time on my hands!!! Wish me luck!!
