devil is a lie

Well I thought the nurse was calling me to tell me to start on my two week pre diet for vsg. She called me because my medical was discontinueed.I was floored.
Well it was because I didn't send paperwork to child support so now they are sending me the paperwork back out ,and I will hand deliver them and get the sanction lifted,then call the nurse back and get back on track. There is a God.

Well everything was taken care of ,now they need to give me my medical assistance back. So now waiting for child support to send an email to dfs. I called each party in point,and everyone says not us.I hope someone gets it right by Monday June 9th.. I am ready for my surgery date..

Can't keep a good woman down!!

Hi Everyone, Everytime I check my e-mail I see a new face that is going to have a sleeve surgery or waiting for insurance clearence. Well I thought I was having my surgery in June . Everything was done the hospital sent my papers into my insurance ,you know what happened,,,, they denied it,because something the dietician wrote in it, oh I was hurt I was not in compliance so, I have to do three more months, so this is my second month ,and September is my third month, So I ask the dietician now do I know everything and doing everything ,'which I new already what to do before and after surgery. So now she says they're not going to turn me down . I was depressed,I wanted to go to my daughter's wedding a little smaller,well I sucked it up and,now I am back on rhis forum letting you know stay encouraged,it will happen, The dietician says it will pass so I am looking at before the year is out. I am happy it wasn't anything major,like lose more weight. So I am back posting and reading all the old and new post to keep me encouraged,until next time, Stay blessed.

waiting game

Hello everyone, I was off the site because I was disgusted with my nutritionist. I had to tale three more months of compliance and today 09/15/2014 was the last day .Now they will turn everything into insurance and wait for a date. I can't wait. I have a new fiancé and he said he's with me for better or worst. So hopefully the end of this month or next Month. Will keep you posted.

compliance done

Took three extra months for compliance now I'm done I did lose ten pounds. So now wait for insurance to be approved and the call. Oh the nutrition did say 2 weeks before surgery I need to be on liquid diet. So we will see.

Tomorrow is my day 11/04/2014

As I lay hear on my stomach . the day before my surgery I wonder if I really want to do this. But then I say to myself , I started this journey and I'm going to finish . My surgery is scheduled for 11:am at the Universiy of Iowa . The bariactric team of Dr. Bauer is performing the surgery and should take 2/3 hours. I'm excited and afraid at the same time. So I'll talk to you guys tomorrow I need to say my prayers and sleep on my stomach for the last time for a long while. Goodnight until tomorrow.

Stayed in hospital

When you think everything's going your way . I stayed in the hospital an extra day because I couldn't pee on my own . What a bummer, but I was given a water soluble and Eventually I flooded the gates . lol, home tomorrow, if everything goes as planned.

I forgot

I forgot to say it doesn't feel like I had surgery two days ago. I feel good, no pain no gain.
