aawwwww shucks ladies!!!! you are THE BEST... and as of this morning, i'm down a total of 261 pounds, and 164 since the surgery. it really HAS been quite a year. and i even called the surgeon to wish us both a happy anniversary and to ask if i could have a glass of champagne [he was too busy to talk]
i checked the clock when i got to the gym this morning.. it was 9:05. at that time a year ago, i wasn't quite out of surgery, but by 9:30 the surgeon was telling peach that i was fine, but i also came out of the anesthesia fighting..
what a difference a year makes!!! no more wheelchair. no more cane!!! and i can breathe and laugh and make peachie's life difficult!!!!
more later, you wonderful ladies.

You are truly an inspiration. As I wait for surgery approval, I read your story and posts I know I'm making the right decision. Keep up the good work. Have a great day today. You certainly deserve it!

one somber note, though. as i was going in for the surgery, debk was being admitted for an extremely long, near-death stay in the hospital from WLS-associated complications.
a bittersweet kind of day... but we're both alive and well and so much more active!!!!!

Yea Jiff, I thought about that this morning when I read this. I was Blessed enough to have a sweet angel keeping me posted on both of you.
I have definately given my Thanks that you both are here to be a part of my life - healthy, spunky and wonderful. And probably driving Peachie crazy! :joker: :angel:
J (who you know gets overly emotional at these kind of thoughts!)

Janice? would you like a tissue? A dirty joke?
01-29-2003, 08:25 PM
Jiff I wanted this to be your celebration! But, thank you for remembering me. It's been a little tough today thinking back to what happened to me a year ago. Daughter mentioned to me this afternoon, "today is the day, one year ago that we found out what **** was." Hey, you would be proud of me, I even ignored the curse word.
But ya know what..........Jiff and I are healthy and happy........and skinnier!!!!!!

janice darlin.. i thought is was peachie that kept you informed... not some SWEET ANGEL!!!!!
AND DEB.. yep.. your family has certainly come back from what was probably the scariest time of their young lives. hope they appreciate it! it's obvious that they havent' forgotten it. and they do indeed love you, as they should!

I am always a day late!
Jiff you are an inspiration to everyone. I am so glad I have gotten to know you. I hope you had a very reflective day yesterday. Even though it seems like you have done what you have had to do, the change in you has been remarkable. I am saying this so poorly, but I hope you get the jist.

Happy Anniversary! Thanks for being here!!!

<bowing> thank you ladies... and you're doing great, chickie.. how's it going??

Jiff, you are especially inspiring for me. I need you to keep all the stuid stuff ole Alvin does in perspective. While you are the poster child for WLS, he is the oposite. IMO (and not very humble opinion) But, he's healthy and happy and still loosing. I guess as long as his doctor is happy, I should be too.
Sorry I digressed, this is supposed to be about YOU and your sucess!!! Keep up the good work and keep cheering all of the rest of us on. we need you.
