    G8trgrl got a reaction from Sammi_Katt in Blossom Bariatrics   
    My time at Blossom made me feel like a celebrity. Everyone was kind and considerate. The person who did the stress test coached me all the way. She was my own personal cheerleader. The nurses at Warm Spring Surgical Center we’re also fantastic. I have difficult veins, but they only had to poke me once. They also were great with me when I was waking up from surgery. I was extremely groggy. Dr. Sakata was fantastic. She made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen and answered every question. Valerie, the nurse that came to visit the hotel was also terrific! I think I made it through the night because of her. The IV Therapy is probably what got me through flying all the way across the country. They gave me battery compression sleeves to wear on the plane. Make sure to charge them the night before. The only problem I had was the hotel wasn’t close to anything. We walked 2 miles to a grocery store in the desert like heat. Probably wasn’t a smart move. But we took a Lyft back. The hotel itself was great! It just wasn’t near anything. Blossom was very good with Covid precautions. Everyone had masks on. They also made sure you used hand sanitizer before going to the next person. Out of 6 laparoscopic surgeries this is the first one where the gas pain was gone by the next day. I highly recommend Blossom.

    I’m having mine done on June 15 as well. My surgery is being done in Vegas. My daughter can’t be with me during the surgery, but they will pick her up from the hotel when I can leave the surgery center so we can go back to the hotel together. My surgery center wasn’t used for months until about two weeks ago. I have the confidence that everything will go well.

    This solution is definitely not overnight. I’ve done 4 medically supervised weight loss plans. I’ve researched the gastric sleeve for over a year. I have other health issues that need to get better. For my health , I’ve decided that this is the best choice for me. I don’t get paid for extended time off. I already have the Summers off unpaid. So, this is the best time for me to do it since I’m already off.

    I’ve been an addict for years. I can only cruise during expensive times, but I always try to get one in every year. This year it’ll be 14 months between cruises since my last one was in July last year. I’ve been on 27 cruises. 🛳
