Getting prepared to go one more Step

Thursday, August 12, 2010

emoticon emoticon I've had knee surgery last fall. I was so proud I got both knees done at one time (arthoscopic) !
When I joined Sparks in July, 2009, I weighed 250 and now I have only lost 4 pounds during that year.
I have had one excuse after the other, but I finally saw my husband's cardiologist this week and he ordered some tests for me. (This is after seeing my kidney doctor and being informed that my kidney failure is worsning and she advised me to see a cardiologist).
NOW, the cardiologist asked me to see a Bariatric Surgeon.
At age 64 , I've finally beaten my self up physically (arthritis along with it) and I'm going to a seminar on August 31 about Bariatric surgery.
This is a BIG step for me and I'm facing it fairly well. I did the same thing when I decided to quit smoking when I was in my 40's.

Thanks for listening.

    Linda, I'll be thinking about you on August 31st. Whatever you decide, it will be the right thing for you.

    I would go to the seminar and listen to the advice of the doctors. I know this is a difficult decision for you and only you know what is best for you. Just having the minor knee sprain that I have experienced has made it more difficult for me to lose. I am losing slowly. I trust my doctors judgement and my Dh's cardiologist regarding my Dh's heart condition. Dh decided to have a pacemaker/defibrilator implant last year and it has helped him but HE had to make that decision himself. Prayers are here for you and I support you friend in whatever you decide.
