  1. Super sick... Ended up in the ER

    Friday 7/25/14 I started throwing up violently in the morning. I couldn't keep anything down all day and left work early to go to my pcp. She of course was full so I saw a NP who didn't know me from Adam. She had no idea what to do with me, I told her about my sleeve and she gave me anti nausea meds. As I was walking out of the room my doctor was in the hall and said you look horrible. I explained what going on and she ordered blood work on the spot. At this point I'm so dehydrated I can barely ...
  2. Almost two months postoperative!

  5. 23 Days Left

    I have 23 days left till I leave for Mexico! Im so excited but freakingout at the same time. Im leaving my kiddos with my husband, which has me worried. He has never watched him by himself for 5 days. We have a 3 year old and 8 month old. I know he can do it, but it might be a diaster when I get back. I have only told a few people that Im having his done. My parents, daycare provider and thats about it. No one else knows. To be honest I dont want the judgemental looks or comments from them. Cause ...
