Quote Love...



"Anyone can achieve their fullest potential;

who we are might be predetermined,
but the path we follow is always of our own choosing.
We should never allow our fears
or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny.
Your destiny can't be changed,
but it can be challenged.
Every man is born as many men
and dies as a single one."

Surprise Surgery

Some of you may know but most of you don't, but I've been going through the paces to be qualified for lapband surgery. These include:
1. A sleep study
2. Bloodwork
3. Upper GI
4. Gallbladder series ultrasound
5. Barium swallow
6. Psychiatry
7. Nutritionist

Well friends, all of my pre-appointments have been done except for the last two, which I have scheduled for the next week. Well...until I started getting results on Friday.

Well apparently I have to have my gallbladder taken out.
(I should have known when the tech asked "have you been having belly pain" and then "i'm just going to go show the doctor this")

And apparently I have severe obstructive sleep apnea.

Goody!

My gallbladder surgery is scheduled for September 2nd, and this coming thursday I have my second sleep study for my sleep apnea.

Hopefully I will be qualified for my lapband surgery sometime in October, but these setbacks may push it farther. I will keep you updated!
