No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

Good morning all my banster friends.  First, wow, less then a week to go and I will join the ranks.  So excited/nervous.

Well, I have been awol for a couple of weeks.  Life got pretty difficult and it was all I could do to go thru the normal daily life.  I was tempted numerous time to eat things I should not (like milk shakes), but I didn't want to screw up all my hard work on my pre-op diet, so I fought thru the emotions.  First, my husband was going thru some very difficult, emotional troubles with his daughter.  Praise God though, He has been working on my husband and has more peace (because his wifey has prayed non-stop for him).  Then, the night before Thanksgiving, we had to rush my kitty to the animal hospital and I ultimately had to have her put to sleep.  My heart has been broken in a million pieces.  I am working thru it, but I miss her so much.  whew!!!

ok, on to band news. I had my pre-op visit 2 weeks ago.  Wow, were they ever thorough!!!  I have a friend that got banded several years ago at a different place and was not educated one bit!!  I have learned volumes more from the facility.  I love the place where I am getting my band.  The entire staff are amazing.

I have all my vitamins, shakes and mushi foods lined up and ready.  I am working on getting my bags packed for the hospital.  It works out my son's college semester ends on Dec. 7th, so I said he will be my nurse.  ha ha, he wasn't too thrilled with that.  I said, well, I will mostly want you to watch movies with me.  I have a pile of Christmas movies lined up and I bought a new book.  Yeah!!!!

So I am back and thankful to all mighty God for sending His grace and peace over my house hold.  I pray all of you, my bandster friends, are well.


  1. I'm so sorry about your kitty! That has to be so hard!

    Not much longer until you're banded! Good luck!

  2. I am so sorry about your fur-baby. I love mine so much and I simply can't imagine ... As far as surgery - sounds like you are ready and that is an awesome feeling. :)

  3. sending thoughts your way about your cat :( so difficult. i have dogs myself and understand how much pets mean to us humans.

    congrats on staying true to your diet! :) it only goes uphill from here!
