Yup - my period runs like a German commuter train - So that being said I will have my period the day after my surgery.

Ok - how did I - Ms. Type A overlook this???? Maybe I should use more sick time and get the date sooner than later???

I bit the bullet and told my boss anyway - I have to go through her for all time off and I thought that would be best - I asked her not to tell anyone but Im sure others know.

My sisters dont know - everytime I thing NOW I will tell them I feel ill so I don't - its a complicated relationship anyway... LOOOOONG story and a very different blog!

So back to my time of the month - I hate HATE nothing more than my monthly visitor - I would stay fat another year if my period would go away forever!!! Maybe that's why that TV lady has 20 kids - so she never has her period???

I am a mental case every month and cannot deal with regular life but after surgery - that will be ugly! Maybe I should go on the pill for 2 months to make sure I don't get it at all? (it worked for my wedding...)

I dont see anything more important than the surgery now - I wish I could have it right now but I have to turn 40 with my ladies and then start the new decade with me - 40 year old wiser banded me!

I have been reading blogs from the start reading about the pre op diet - not happy about that but again better than my period!

Ive been reading about the shoulder pain, the port pain and the fill pain. All pain I hope to handle to also be able to celebrate like you - the Onederland - the100lbs. lost - 110 lost - 120 lost - god if I go with my BMI chart I need to be down to 140lbs at the high end - thats 137lbs. - That seems so far away....

Anyway - you all amaze me! I am honoured to me here with such strong and amazing people - thanks for sharing your stories... any advice would be helpful - any tips on the period thing would also help.
