driver's licences, Cat scan and other things....

I went to get my Colorado drivers license last week. They asked me for my weight (they actually put your weight on your licence here ;0 ) When they asked me for my weight I told them what I will be at -100 pounds as my weight. Hey..... I'm almost there.

I went for my CT scan on Tuesday. It took 4 tries to get the IV started
Thursday I had to go in to have some blood drawn. I have not had my 6 month blood tests done yet. I was at the doctors for 2 hours.... I was poked about 10 times (I lost count) and still they didn't get enough blood. I need to go to a lab to get more drawn.

Most importantly.... the doctor called me today. They didn't find any cats ;))) but I do have a large ventral hernia. It's in the same place as I had it the last 2 times ;(((( I guess I will be scheduling surgery.... again. I'm not sure who I am going to see, or when I am going to try to have it done. The doctor gave me a referral for a surgeon at the hospital close to us. I was going to call him... but am thinking I should stay with the lap band guy who took over my care. I really don't think I should have someone poking around who is not familiar with bands. I am thinking I will try to schedule it in May or so... when I get back from MI (my niece is getting married and we will be going for the wedding) A lot of it will depend on when he is willing to do it, since he told me he would not do the repair until I am at a BMI of 40 or less. (I am almst there now)

That's about it for now. I will post again tomorrow when I do my official weight.
