    Nervous, Happy, Scared, Excited!

    I called the WLS center yesterday to make sure they had the correct phone numbers since they hadn't called to schedule my surgery. The scheduler told me I was scheduled to be scheduled next week. I was pissed! I knew that if they waited that long, it would be after the new year before I could have the surgery.

    So, I did what every woman without balls does. I hung up and called my husband and protecter. Mr. Sign called the WLS center to remind them that it was partially their fault that our surgeries had been so delayed. The office manager admitted neglegence and low and behold, I got a call 5 minutes later.

    She only had one opening in November, the 25th, which didn't work for me. She said, "Well, I just had a cancellation for 2 weeks from tomorrow but you have to come to a class tomorrow or you can't have the surgery." I said, I'll figure out a way to be there!

    Well, my little chickadees, my surgery is scheduled for October 25th! Two weeks from today. I will be attending a dietician and excercise class all day today. I begin the 800 calorie diet today.

    Luckily, I had my last dinner last night with a good friend. I had a steak, garlic mashed potatoes, broccoli and for dessert, sizzling apple pie. I got the meal for free since I ordered the steak medium rare and it came out well done. I sent it back and the new one that returned was well done again. The manager gave me the meal for free.

    If you are a religious person, please pray for me. If not, just send good vibes my way as I begin my journey.

    As someone who schedules surgery I don't get the whole "scheduled to be scheduled". I mean either your scheduled or your not-weird.

    Anywho, super, super excited for you. Sending all kinds of force waves your way (the good kind, not force lighting or anything).

    May I pray for you?

    Lord, I thank you for Signgurl and I lift her up to you. I ask that you bless her surgeon with wisdom and skill. That you guide his hands and fill his mind with knowledge. I ask you to touch everyone in the OR and guide them. I ask you to place a hedge of protection around Jenn and her family. That you grant her great favor with everyone who has influence over this situation. I ask you to pour out your devine healing power over her body and mind. That you allow your joy to jump in her spirit even now as I type. Lord I pray this same prayer over Mr. Sign during his surgery. I ask that you show yourself mighty, true, faithful, and strong to Jenn. I thank you for allowing such a great blessing to come upon this family. In Jesus name, Amen.

    btw, great things happen in Rocktober.
