'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE BANDING...


...and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The children were sleeping, all tucked in their bed when there arose such a clatter on the roof overhead. I leapt out of bed and ran to the window and with my blurry eyes, I saw Chris Cringle. "I have your Lap Band all ready and raring to go. I'll place your port in a place where no one will know. You'll awaken from your sleep all happy and relieved, your journey has begun and you'll be so pleased."


I am so excited about tomorrow. This is going to be truly amazing. I have to say, I haven't been too worried today. I decided a few days ago to leave this in God's hands and everything will go perfectly. He has never let me down and I know in my heart this has all come about for me as a result of His guidance. Faith is truly a powerful thing. It's times like this, that I reaffirm my own beliefs. I am so grateful for this opportunity to live a wonderful, healthy life.


Let the games begin!

Eliana, I will be thinking about you tomorrow (due to the time difference you will probably be resting by the time you get this.. or maybe it comes before you go in.. hope it's option two!!) This is going to be a very exciting time for you... MUCH LUCK!!!!!
