July 4, 2012 the idea of having a band popped into my mind.
My first appointment was July 20, 2012.
I was approved August 16, 2012.
It flew by.
So yesterday I went to get my EKG. Took 10 minutes, no big deal.
I called my surgeon's office to ask if I could go for my blood work since I was only 5 minutes away. Sure thing. When I arrive, they inform me the bloodwork is done back at the hospital where I had the EKG. Oh, and I need a chest Xray too. So I got the EKG, Lab work, and chest Xray all done yesterday.
I'm excited to see how the lab results compare to 2012. I still have those numbers.
Psychologist (a 4 hour appointment!!!) on Monday.
And EGD on May 5.
I just really don't remember it being this much work and stress before. But maybe 6 months from now, when I've had my approval and surgery (fingers crossed), this distant memory won't seem so bad either.
In other news, I got to meet an online WLS friend!
Cindy and I started following each other in Instagram in the winter and didn't realize we were both in NC for several months- only to find out we share the same surgeon.
Cindy is 8 months post-op with VSG and 90 pounds down. She is so cute and funny. It was great finally getting to meet her!
