Long time no talk...again

Hi folks. Sorry it's been so long since my last post. Had my knee replaced 4 weeks ago tomorrow. Still NOT glad I did it!!! They say it takes about three months to be happy you'd done it. Guess I have another 2 months to go!!! It is getting easier and a bit less painful every day. Having said that--- it still hurts, a lot.

Had a moment of sweating in pre op when the nurse plugged my weight into the hospital computer thingy, turned to me and said "Um, have you gained weight recently? The computer is showing you up 17%" I thought, "Oh CRAP, there goes my surgery". I guess they didn't say anyhting to the surgeon, cuz the surgery went on as planned.

Unfortunetely,I am up in weight. My all time low was 113 pounds lost. I am now at 86 pounds lost. It sucks, but could be worse, I guess.

Still waiting for the insurance company to come through, I'm figuring it's gonna be at least another 2-3 months for that ;(

My husband might get a job back in Michigan. My biggest fear is that he gets the job and I have to start all over with another insurance (Kaiser is not in MI) and they give me a big hassle/make me do a 6 months diet or flat out refuse to pay for the surgery. This job would still be with the same company (AT&T) but the first insurance we had with them when we got here was BCBS of IL, and they are the ones who gave me such a hassle. Why is it that all of my friends can just walk into a surgeons office, say they want to have weight loss surgery and get it???? It's just not fair. Yes, I will take a bit of cheese with that whine ;0

Well, that's my update... hope everyone is doing well.
