Ok, I am at our hotel and doing very well. I woke up a lot easier from my drugs than I did last time. I noticed right when the nurse had me sip juice that I have restriction! YAY! Not a lot, but a lot more than nothing! Also Dr k showed the port and tubing to my mom and it has a 1/8 in tear in the tubing. This is the 4th time it has happened to one of Dr k's patients. He told her that he is meeting with the company that makes them on Friday to discuss how they should be financially responsible for not only the part cost, but the cost of the patients replacement surgeries as well. So we may get our money back for this one! Too bad I can's make them magically lose the weight I gained in the mean time. Oh well. I did really well my first year and plan on doing that well again this year. Plus I exercise a great deal more now than I did then. I am going to be flying out tomorrow afternoon.

Dee- If you wanted to come by we will be here till 12. Thanks again for taking us to get my RX. You are so sweet and amazing!

Wow! I'm glad you had an easier time this time. I'm sorry I missed you on Friday! My conference ran until after 430pm. I still have those things for you. Do you think you'll be out again for another fill? Or did he give you enough during surgery? I hope the company ends up paying for this procedure! I think it's horrible that you had to suffer without any restriction all of that time, had to endure another surgical procedure and then had to pay for it too!

Take care Dear!

Love,

dee~

p.s. I loved meeting your family! AND it was my pleasure spending that little bit of time with you!

You ladies look wonderful! I just got home from a two week cruise and land tour of Alaska. Weighing 1.2 pounds less than I started! In the old days, I would have gained at least 10 pounds. The funny thing is - I didn't even miss it. I ordered what I wanted and ate my tiny quantities and would be done with it. The amount of food I saw people eating on the cruise was pretty gross. And I would have been right there with them!

I love my band.

ok, so I am almost 2 weeks out from my port replacement and doing fairly well. I did have to get my lortab refilled. I had trouble sleeping. Still am not losing. But I figured I would have to get a fill right away anyway. I am wanting to ask you all your opinion on something. Dr K said he would be going after the manufacturer for the cost of the surgery and such. What I was wondering, is should I make a case for extra? With all the flights, hotels, recovery time, weight gain, wasted time etc.? What do you all think? I have obviously never been in a position like this before and would love some input. Thanks!

I would talk to Dr K about it. He may be seeking only the coverage of your surgery costs and you may need to get an attorney to get the rest covered. I would call it "pain and suffering" expenses. Thinking you had restriction and not having it - is certainly very difficult to deal with. It lasted a long time and you should be compensated for it. I think they should cover the hotel and other travel expenses too, but you may have to get an attorney.

Good Luck Girlie!

How about Red Robin night on

Tuesday, July 13th at 7?

Deb will be in town from Florida for an unfill and I know she wants to see everybody. Does that date work for everybody?

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
