    Hi, just wanted to see how you're doing. I was at VCU last week for my yearly checkup and wished I could have offered you my friendship and hopefully some helpful information. Do you have a quit buddie to talk to and share ideas with? I have one and we've stayed in touch throughout the entire year.
    Keep in touch and wishing you the best!!! Stay strong because you CAN do this!

    Awesome! Nov 20th was my date also. The staff is amazing! Jill answers your emails in a timely manner and never makes you feel like you're bothering her. Which physician do you have? My Dr. Kellum retired, but both doctors are great. I see the female surgeon. I live in South Hill which is a little over an hour away. The surgery isn't bad at all. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Best of luck as your journey begins!

    Yes I have to wait again to get approved. So hopefully I get a date in nov, so I can get clearance from the hemo dr when I go. Aww well hopefully UHC gets it together, ask the hospital to call too. Well it took a whole month to get the denial letter in the mail from them, but I received a call two week before.

Oct 2nd I go to do my psych evaluation again because by time they resubmit for the sleeve it's gonna be expired. Then Oct7th I go meet with my surgeon and hopefully get a new date but in early November . Then 10/13 I go to get clearance from the hemologist.
