Before surgery Blog

Monday, March 18, 2013

The title says it all pretty much. Today I go in for excess skin removal surgery. I have kept 146 lbs off. So this is my reward for my lifestyle changes. Unfortunately, insurance is not footing the bill. My mother is picking up this tab. When mom passed I had invested some of my inheritance and decided this is how I would spend it. Actually, she would have been thrilled! During her later years she would have really really loved to have gotten a face lift but she could not justify the cost. At that time if was about $5000. or so. Oh well, mom this one is for you!

I have read many blogs concerning excess skin removal so much of this experience will come as no surprise. I hope! I will write more after! Wish me luck!

    Thank you so much for your good wishes and especially prayers. Day 2 after surgery is so much better than day of surgery.
