Excited!!

In a few hours I will be having a life changing surgery. I know not everyone does or will support it, but honestly that's their own issue. After 5 years of research, talking to numerous people who have had various types of it done, and working one on one with a doctor to prepare me for this, I will be having Gastric Bypass Sleeve surgery. The sleeve is far less invasive than the RNY that so many are familiar with. The biggest difference is that with the sleeve your intestines are left alone vs the rny they are cut and rerouted. The biggest advantage to that is that I will be able to continue to absorb nutrients without having to take all types of vitamins for the rest of my life.
I am not nervous at all, but  just so excited. I have peace and know that this will be the TOOL that I have needed for so long to get HEALTHY, for myself and for my family. The thought of running and playing with my kids, I have no words to describe how much that excites me. To know that we can go on family bike rides, walks, play sports together. Beyond words. In the whole vanity side, the thought of buying clothes in the normal area and not the plus size, makes me want to cry with tears of joy.
I am looking forward to being able to walk up a flight up stairs without heavy breathing, being healthy, and expanding my life in so many ways.
I covet your prayers. If you are not supportive, I just ask that you say nothing and just instead pray for my surgeon, for me as I make major life changes.

With that, I'm off to get a few hours of sleep before I have to be up. I have a couple loads of laundry I want to get done in the morning.

I'm excited to see where the Lord takes me from here!!

Praying that this surgery helps you to accomplish all that you want it to. My very good friend had gastric bypass and has gone from over 300 lbs. to under 200.
