Those of you who follow me on Facebook already know but I'm not having surgery this week. There was some concern by the hospital vascular department and anesthesiologist assigned to my case. They felt at my weight and with my history it wouldn't be safe. They are the experts so I understand, I'm not even mad.
Today the surgeon got approval to do it once I'm under 600 pounds and I think I have about 40 pounds to go. I will have my official weigh-in tomorrow morning and I'm setting a goal for myself, no matter the number, to be under 600 pounds by 8/31. I'm going to bust ass to get this done, cause I don't want it taken away from me again. I don't think I took it serious the last couple of weeks, it felt too easy, like this was too good to be true. I should have know. Everything works out as designed, and once the weight is off, not only will I have a head-start on my new life, it will make the surgery easier for them so yah, I might live!
