Today I had an apt. at Fort Carson about the surgery... it seems that my blood pressure is too high for the anesthesia to work on me. So I am now on some meds for it. He also said that I'm a better fit for the standard gastric bypass instead of the vertical sleeve. :( That REALLY bums me out. I had done all the research on it and I just.. am scared.. He thinks I may get in by mid-August. That is fine, however I will have to do some re scheduling since the kids will be in school and so will I. But the better news is..
