    Red face Chart is complete and headed to Surgeons Office

    I have posted a few times about delays and frustration, I decided this past week I wasn't fretting anymore.

    Friday I got a call from the center saying my chart was complete, and headed to the Surgeons office.

    I finally got a chance to get some clarification of my status. I now schedule a meeting with surgeon.

    I was told it was a matter of a day of pre-op, two weeks liquid diet and surgery.

    I was told surgery would probably by the end of March.

    I would love to say I was SUPER EXCITIED. But just relieved knowing, my chart wasn't lost and to know I'm still "JOURNEYING".

    Ok, now I'm getting a little more "EXCITED".

    Just got a call from Surgeon's office. I have my consult March 5th.

    The lady asked me did I have a preference on a "Surgeon" ? I said "I should have an idea, of what to ask, but I don't." "So NO."

    I did hang up and immediately closed my eyes and prayed. I live by faith.

    I called my wife and told her because my support partner has to go with me. She asked me "Did they tell you what Surgeon you would be meeting with?

    I didn't ask ? I was so excited to get the call I was just "OKAY !!" "I'll be there." She laughed and said "I was just curious." Its not a big deal.

    All I have to do is bring my "Meds".

    Just knowing I have another date is exciting.

    I too, finally got accepted by my insurance and Monday, the 25th is d-day or S-day. I'm excited, nervous, anxious. My lap band comes (broken lap band) out and sleeve takes over. Not going to miss the lap band as it has broken 2 times. Wish me luck. I'm ready.
