And Mandy J.- Thank you for reminding everybody else. You are very very sweet! Yes, the voting ends on June 1st at 5pm. They are supposed to notify the winner on June 3rd and the winner will be announced at the doctor's website on June 6th. I am so nervous! I just want this surgery so bad and also do not want my supporters' time and energy gone wasted. I am sending regular e-mails and FB reminder messages to all my family and friends... And now you guys here! :-) I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your kindness and time!

Thank you so much peacequeen!

Hey ladies, read my new thread titled "aggravating" under the general discussion forum if it gets approved (I don't see it yet... I guess I am still being moderated because I am so new). It is about this ignorant gym owner who got me all upset! :angry: Ha ha ha! Thanks again you all!

I voted! Here's hoping. If you win, be sure to check for after care. Band fills can be mighty expensive. Perhaps you have already considered it. Just don't want you to have a surprise.

Does your hubby have a choice of insurances? If he has an open season, you might want to check the other plans and see if you can switch to one that covers WLS.

Thank you so much again AWright, project lisa, Mandy J, newday11, Cocoabean, and gingy!

Mandy J- Thanks for continuing to be my "cheerleader". I am touched for your caring!

Cocoabean- Excellent advise. Thanks! I had totally imagined that the fills would be included but I will be sure to verify that! Unfortunately my hubby does not have a choice for insurance. That has changed during the recent years as the city he works for is getting shorter and shorter on money. Even if WLS was currently covered under our insurance, we would still have to pay $5,000 out of pocket (- what ever we have already paid this year). The city only offers one of those horrible high deductable plans so in essence, we have no insurance unless something MAJOR happens. Yet, we are still paying about $200 a month for a family plan. I am so disgusted with our insurance plan and our medical bills just keep on piling up. Our 6-year old has a chronic and quite severe asthma so the medicines costs a few hundred dollars a month. We also have a toddler who regularly gets some kind of virus from pre-school and has to visit pediatrician several times a year. I wonder if we should look into trying to privately insure ourselves?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
