Today I have the final pre-op tests at my local clinic; x-rays, EKG and blood work. I am feeling good. I keep seeing a little progress on the scale, but more than anything I can feel the difference. Scale is around 285, which is 18 pounds down from June 2009, when I started all this. My pants are looser, my stomach isn't its usual bloated, full feeling. I am peeing like a race horse from all of my liquids, lol. My countdown ticker says 11 days, 23 hours...wow. It is still sinking in. Next week it's off to Sioux Falls for my pre-op class with the dietician and final pre-op visit with my surgeon. I am also going to visit one of my good friends while I am there, so that will be a bonus.
