Looking ahead three weeks

Three weeks from today, I will be back in surgery. This time for a gastric sleeve. Bariatric surgery is nothing to sneeze at... but after spending the past two and a half years trying to lose the weight that I was forced to gain in order to heal the wound from the botched surgery.... part of me is just frustrated. The weight needs to come off now so I can have the surgery that will repair my intestines, remove the colostomy and repair the multiple hernias.  That can't happen until the bariatric surgery has done its job...and time and exercise have done theirs.

As one can imagine, I am dreading this process.


  1. Thanks Gary. Didn't want to delve too deep into the thoughts that have been running through my mind.... figured I would leave that for another blog post. Maybe today if I can wrap up a couple other projects that need my attention.

  2. we will keep you high in our thoughts my friend!

  3. Thank you Meredith. Can't wait till I'm on the other side of this process and on the downhill side of the recovery process.
