Change of Plans?

I'm almost afraid to write this post after Tuesday evening, but here goes...

Tomorrow morning at 8:15am, I will be revised from my lap band to the VERTICAL GASTRIC SLEEVE.

No more RNY Gastric Bypass.  Apparently it wasn't approved by my insurance company and when they submitted to request it, it was denied.  Fuck you, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.  I mean, they approved the Sleeve based on a letter I wrote about why I need to have Gastric Bypass?  Really?


I'm not a particularly religious person, but I do believe in God, and I think this is all in His plan.  I believe God made sure I was having the right surgery for me. 

So here we go again.

I've been on this clear liquid diet again today and it SUCKS!  I'm sure you all remember from when you had your surgeries.

I'm not sure I'll believe it's actually happening until I'm at the hospital tomorrow, but cross your fingers and send me your prayers please!


  1. FINGERS CROSSED. You are going to rock whatever you get! I love my sleeve btw, its a solid option. :)

  2. You got this girl. Good luck tomorrow. Sending love from Florida.

  3. I'm taking it as a good sign that we haven't heard from you, so I'm hoping you are having your surgery...good luck girl..praying for you!

  4. Oh my gosh haven't logged on or blogged in just about forever. Hope it went well, look forward to your update!

  5. Fingers crossed that all went well.
