No it's not a Nigerian scam!
I'm going to be having surgery on February 5 to have the excess skin removed from my stomach. The best part is I meet all the requirements from my insurance for it to be considered medically necessary so it's going to be covered and my four day hospital stay will only end up costing us $60.60! I love a bargain! :)
I'm excited and nervous. I've been working on just focusing on the excited part though because no good comes from being nervous about it. Plus my doctor is really great so that helps a lot.
So on 2/5/09, well it will be the 4th in the states, say a prayer for me, my doctor, and the hospital staff.
I'm sure I will post about it between now and then to remind you so don't worry about marking your calendars! :)
