This past Monday (1/5/2009), my mom had gastic bypass. I know what your thinking...."WHAT?? SHE DOESN'T NEED IT!!". Trust me, I thought the same thing. But it's what she wanted and the insurance covered it. She came home today and she is doing great! She is feeling great and walking. My dad is having the same surgey on Jan. 19th. So, I'm about to have 2 very skinny parents!! I will post some pictures of her as the weight starts to come off!
