  13. so much going on in my life I'm feeling really down and depressed, going to push my surgery date back due to the fact that my lil sister is having health issues,she is going to have surgery in the next couple of weeks, it's a very rear and serious surgery, please keep her in prayer. my daughter is graduating from nursing school at the end of april which is GREAT... thought I had every thing planned out and scheduled with my work....having to cancel my surgery date of april 12,2013, looks like it's going to be hard to get time off work,they only have one person to fill in for 17 rehab techs in a 40 mile area.i know this will happen, just was looking forward to a great and healthy summer i'm so ready to start this journey...fingers crossed that I will be able to go sometime in may. so guess i'm done venting ....for now!!! just been one of them weeks, but i'm going to pull up my BIG girl panties and get thur this...and by this time next years i'll pull up my my LIL girl panties.

    I'm using Quinones. I read a lady's story about Almanza on gastric sleeve group on Facebook and she said she would never go back. She said her surgery was done correctly but that they were herded in to the OR like cattle every 45 min and, the equipment they used was the cheapest around, the recovery house was loud and not private and she said one lady there was very ill all night and they wouldn't give her anything. I don't want any part of that!
