Yes, I realize its been a while, or months since I've posted. Good news is, nobody really reads this, so... I'm not really disappointing anybody :-)
I can't believe this is really happening! I've now done my 1st surgical consult, my nutrition consult, my psych consult, and got all my paperwork in order. The office is turning in my paperwork this week, and then the waiting game starts! I am really hoping I can get banded the beginning of July. Was hoping for the last week of june (which would have been a great week for work) but I'm dog sitting for a couple weeks, and it involves lots of work, so I figure surgery is out until afterwards.
So, I can't believe its actually happening! I finally told a couple members of my family. I really figured most would be very supportive, and they are so far. We'll see how it goes.
Anyway, hoping to check in more often as things get going.
