Well well,everybody! it's your favorite Frstr8 reporting in. Left Mount Vernon at 7am, returned home at 1:30pm, so a lot,of fun and games in Columbus. I met with Nurse practitioner, dietician(a cute dude) exercise physiologist and had blood drawn. Then after I got home I called both my cardiologist and pulmonologist to have notes and observations records forwarded to OSU so I don't have to go through another series. Now we come to my EGD, my gastroenterologist did it in December 2017, got pretty pictorial document for me to keep, the bad news ,he shut down his local practice last month. Not sure where he went , perhaps Newark, so how do,i get his notes.etc? I am liable to be,looking at EGD #3 in less than 3 years. Mind you I don't mind the actual having, it's just going to delay the surgery a skosh more. Plus another trip to Columbus before the" dirty deed "gets done . And I am an impatient patient!😓 I yearn for completion.👉😝👈

Hi Everyone!

I am new around here. I have been lurking for months but this is my first post. I am scheduled for bypass surgery on June 4th! I am so excited. I was hoping to get a surgery date buddy to go through this process with for support. I'm 37 years old with 3 kids. I have yo-yo dieted my entire life and am looking to get things under control. My BMI is around 38 but I have a co-morbidity of sleep apnea so I was able to be approved. I am looking forward to meeting people to share this journey with!

Thank you Ylime for making the spreadsheet. That was so sweet and helpful.

.5 is nothing, that could just be Water. Don't sweat it.

Nice list!! I've always wanted to make nice lists like this, but my printed handwriting is atrocious!

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
