    Sounds good! I'm always open for new friends. I'm doing pretty good, other than all this crazy snow! How are you? You're so close to your goal, good for you! I'm thrilled with my weight loss, but I still have a ways to go. The sleeve was definitely the best choice I ever made. I always tell people, my only regret is not doing this sooner.
  2. Thanks

    Hi Ema! My youngest is studying social work. He has about three semesters left for his undergrad degree. I teach sociology at a community college. The weight loss has slowed considerably but I am happy where I am. I can comfortably wear a size 12 pants but need a 14 top because the batwing arms I have:-) Margaret

    Thank you for accepting my request. Are you ready for surgery?
  8. I am very glad to hear that you are doing well. I understand it is hard to adjust to the diet. I will be having my surgery on 9/13 and will be in the same boat. I hope it gets easier for you as the time goes by.

Second Day Post-op

by Ema on 09-15-2014 at 04:27 PM
This is my second day since surgery and I feel better than I had imagined I would. Once they took the drain out, no pain in my left side. As for the shoulder pain, I seem to have walked my way through it. I do feel a little bit of a hangover from pain meds and sleep meds, but that is fine.

Dr. Elias Ortiz and his medical staff are very good and very efficient. Never did I have to ask for anything. They were on time with meds and and all of my other needs.

Thanks

Surgery on Saturday the 13th!

by Ema on 09-12-2014 at 01:45 AM
I have been waiting for sleeve time to get here and it is arriving. I go to TJ tomorrow for all the pre-op stuff and then on Saturday they'll do my surgery. I am not really nervous. Mostly curious about how my stomach will feel after and knowing I need to be cautious with it.

I'll try to post after my surgery and let know how my experience was.

Blessings to all!
