I had my surgery performed in 2015. The surgeons of Advent Health were superb. The surgery was performed with precision and speed. I was up walking after my leak test and home the very next day. I was given medications to endure my stomach muscles did not try to work while they were healing (no squeezing and pushing food along). The staff sent me home with packets of information on what to eat for each stage of recovery as well as recipes and portion guidelines. I was also given a journal/calendar to track food/exercise and appointments along my new lifestyle/ weight loss journey. I felt like I had this huge support team in my corner the whole time. All I had to do was pick up the phone and there they were.

Additionally, the weekly support group meetings were so helpful. I was able to give and get support all along my journey. Advent Health Ocala really goes out of their way to.care for their patients! May that is why the were given the title of Bariatric Center of Excellence!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      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.
