yes, I am alive…

I didn’t realize that I hadn’t posted since last Friday…goodness, where does the time go?!

Things have been crazy here between work and getting ready for my surgery. We also had my sis Paula and her munchkin, Randa for a few days which was a blast.

And the surgery, well, it is in 6 hours and 30 minutes. Yes, I am still up…can’t sleep. I hadn’t been nervous about it until Wednesday night. I guess staying busy did/does have its perks. Now, everything is ready and I have time to mull over if I am still making the right decision. I know deep inside that I am, but there is always that doubt when you are facing major surgery.

For those that hadn’t been privy to details about the surgery, I am having lap band surgery. I have battled my weight for years now, to no avail and with my current health situation, I simply don’t have the time to keep battling it. My oncologist and I both feel that this is the right choice. It’s not going to be easy, lap band is NOT a quick fix but, I am willing to do whatever it takes to make sure I see my little girl graduate HS.

I had agonized over even posting about it, but finally decided that if I can help one person with my experience, it is worth it. Some people will choose to be mean and/or speak before they think. I can say I have heard it all by now and will delete any comments that are not following the golden rule. I am doing what we feel is best for me, my health and my family. Frankly, that is all that matters.

So, pray for me…6 hours and 15 more minutes!
