And Kevin M my angel son was your namesake, if b he hadn't died. he would now be 42
Looking at you on your Harley I can pretend for a millisecond my Kevin was alive and riding with you. And for a brief moment he is with me again. Yes I'm crying 💦but it loosens the band that has been around my 💔 the last 10,and a half. years. You would have liked my Kevin and I'm sure he would have,liked you. Thank you very much for,posting, my friend😪

Frustr8, I am so sorry for your loss. The brotherhood of Kevin's is very strong! Every Kevin I meet is special. Please know that I am sure if I had the opportunity to ride with your son it would have been special and great for us both. After all bikers are a rare breed. Keep strong and I know that is easier said than done. Remember that we are all in this journey for the goal to have better health and a long and full life! Thank you for your post and well wishes.

My son’s name is Kevin as well. He was killed by someone who didn’t Slow Down or Move Over as is the law in MA. He was loading a disabled vehicle onto his flatbed tow truck and was struck and killed instantly by someone who didn’t. He was 22 and my baby. He would be 25 now.

Are you having your surgery there in the Nutmeg State? Certainly don't have to go to Boston or into NYC, you probably have Yale-New Haven and such right around the corner. Congratulations and hopeful wishes for the future, my friend.

Thanks so much! I am having it done at Roger Williams in RI- they are actually the closest center for excellence for me. So happy I will be joining the ranks of the losers!!!

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
