It’s been awhile. When I started this blog I had every intention of writing everything down. Things got busy, the nutrition appointments were boring, so I stopped. I’m back tonight to update. I left off at my second appointment. I completed the nutrition appointments and the psychology appointment. The psychology appointment was interesting. Sitting in a room with an older lady trying to explain why I want to be thinner. She asked a bunch of questions and was told that she had a few concerns. I’m a people pleaser. She had concerns of me eating to make people happy. After the face to face meeting I was given a 150 question test to fill out. One of the weirdest tests I’ve ever taken. As I was leaving the meeting I was stopped by office personal and asked if I had a personal physician. Of course I had already given them Dr. Hernandez’s name and number, but they needed two years of medical data, or pictures that went back 3 years. I had one more appointment with the nutritionist and I was wasn’t very confident going into the appointment. Total I lost 2.5 pounds over the three months. I was done with the pre assessment appointments. I then had to sit and wait. I waited for over a month before I heard anything. Then one day I got a letter in the mail from my insurance company. My surgery had been approved. Then I waited for the doctor’s office to call back. Two more weeks went by and no call. I called the doctor’s office myself and was routed back to the nutrition clinic. So again I waited. A few days later I got a call telling me the surgery had been approved and I now needed to meet with the doctor. However he was out-of-town for two weeks. Today I had my appointment today. I scheduled my appointment for the 17th of August. I tried to talk with my floor supervisor this afternoon after going to the hospital to complete all the pre surgery tests and pre registration. So I’m set to go. I have one and a half weeks to prepare and get my mind-set. Next Wednesday there is a class I have to attend and then I will check in at 5:30 in the morning on Monday. Scared, nervous, excited? Not yet, give me a few days to let it sink in.
