I was pretty much restrained with my time since I was the primary caretaker for my mom who recently passed away, and now I don't have to worry about making sure she's cared for, or my children! So, now it's my time! My mom told me(and her eyesight was bad)not to ever let myself get fat again! I won't plus I'm doing one better-getting a better body!
I finally chose Dr. Leon after reading reviews, re-reading reviews, and often staying up to 3-4 am reading! My research often consumed my entire weekends and weekday evenings after I got off of work! I'd narrowed it down to Drs. Medina, Molina, and Leon. But, I kept coming back to Dr. Leon who was always my original choice! I always had a good vibe about him! I did get a tiny bit discouraged at first because I didn't hear back as quickly from him as I'd read others had heard back from him, but I finally tried contacting him from a different email account, and I heard back the next day! So, I chalked it up to an email glitch from the first email addy I'd used. I'm also interested in getting my arms and the girls done, but Dr. Leon suggested a return visit. And, he's the Doctor! After all, safety is a priority! I chose him because of his reviews, not over booking surgeries daily, and where he performs his surgeries! I have severe issues with over booking/scheduling! Ask my hairstylist! LOL! LOL!
I'm 5'5"/180 lbs. In good health. My younger co workers tell me they want to be like me "when they grow up"! Well, I think it's time I improved my body to match my face since my co workers don't want to believe I'm well past 50! One co worker told me my face was phenomenal when she found out I was older than her, and she was stressing about turning 50! I think I do show my age, but I've attributed that to several stressors in my life lately-good and bad i.e. the birth of my first grandchild, job stress, my beautiful cousin dying of breast cancer at the age of 42 after just being diagnose with it 4 mos earlier, and my mom passing! But, I believe GOD doesn't put more on me than I can bear!
I've told my sister, daughters, and my niece my plans. My niece has always supported me and accompanied me when I went to MX. My daughters were unable to go-1 was preggie and the other didn't get her passport in time before I left! My niece is going to accompany me this time also to the DR! Yes, I'm taking my Vit C and B12. Don't know my Hgb and Hct levels yet since I don't go until Nov. I plan on arriving the 22nd, seeing Dr. Leon the 23rd for blood work, etc, and having surgery the 24th! In time for Thanksgiving! Will also have my birthday while I'm there! I told my Podiatrist what I was doing and she said, "You must really be bored since your mom passed! Please don't go out of the country! It's not safe!" Really!!! I mean really!!! Who the hell gets surgery because they're bored!??? Okay, I don't have time to glorify your stupidity! Bye! I don't even want you to look at my feet anymore!
Anyway, Dr. Leon is opening his own RH, and that's where I plan on staying! I'll be sure to review my experience and the RH for you divas!
Now, I just need to prepare for my trip. Have passport will travel! Will need to get the essentials for traveling to DR and back. Will make a list as time gets closer for my travel!
Until next time divas!
