Default Passed the next stage of approval for Plastic Surgery!

Ok here's the deal...I'm having a procedure call a Fleur de lis abdominoplasty (called that because of the shape of the scar) at the University of Utah residency clinic! There were several pre-surgery requirements...a consult with the surgeon, Check! Acquiring the money, Check! (It was only a fraction of the cost if having it done in Boise) Approval by the Attending, Check! Now, I am just waiting for a date!

I don't feel I look like I've lost the amount of weight I have lost (mostly without clothes that is) because of the skin issue. Though I, my boyfriend and now the surgeon can see that I am a skinny thing underneath it all! I am so excited!
