Default one more hurdle to go

Today I had bloodwork and ultrasound, tomorrow I meet with my surgeon. I am so excited I can't stand it.

My little sister, all stinking 100 lbs of her cute little body, came over to watch TV tonight. With a bag of chips ahoy cookies. Then she left them here!!! I can't just eat one - I'll eat the rest so I am on the computer pretending I don't know where they are!

It isn't working.

1 more day --- I have passed everything - have insurance approval yet I am still dreading the appointment tomorrow because I am just sure there is SOMETHING that will make the surgeon reject me! Anyone else feel that way - until they had the surgery?

I felt the same way, that there would be just something for the surgeon to say your not a good risk. There wasn't, and I bet you will be the same way.

And I agree with Jiff, just throw the cookies in the trash! Hard to do, but you can do it.

Let us know how your doctor visit goes.
