A Lucky Day Indeed

Whoo-hoo!!!  I got a fill!!!  :-D  Yes, I forgot to ask how much....but enough he said "We'll get you tightened up."  I really don't feel any different....although I can feel the liquids going between my pouch and stomach.  It's a different sensation for sure.

I'm on clear liquids and protein shakes today and tomorrow, then purees for two days, then back to normal food.  My friend is a doll and lent me her blender since my "Magic Bullet" broke! :-(  Now, is a strawberry daquiri considered a clear liquid?  LOL

And here's where luck comes in...that "new patient administrative fee" was waived once she found out we'd only be here less than a year.  I mentioned my concern about having to pay it every time we moved and I had to find a new doctor.   She also gave me a referral for a local doctor to use as my pimary care, since I haven't found one yet.

So, I have to say the office staff were on par for the rest of the people I've met in Florida...very friendly.  While I'm still not thrilled to be in Florida, I can say when we leave, the friendliness and warmth of the people will be missed.

Let's get this weight loss (re)started!!!!!


  1. Yay! I am so glad you got your fill! Thank God they waived the fee too! Don't you just love Dr.Freidman and Miss Betty? I say go ahead and have your daquiri!!!!!

  2. I am thanking I think that money saved is going into Munchkin's mouth on Tuesday. I'm thinking they're going to pull at least one tooth, if not two.
    Yes, the whole team there is great! Very friendly and efficient, too. :)

  3. Hopefully this fill will get you to where you need to be!! :)

  4. Whoo-hoo to YOU on both the fill AND your saving some hard earned cash, too!! Good for YOU!!! It is always nice to find a place where the folks are helpful, pleasant and efficient! I'm happy for you!

  5. Sounds like an all around great visit! I love those kind!!

  6. Y'know, I don't know where in FL you are, but one thing I learned at BOOBs is how many Floridians were there & in the lap-band bloggy world. You have a LOT of support around you & you girls could be doing some little "reBOOBs" a lot over there. Just a suggestion... :)
    Congrats on your fill & I hope this restarts your band journey. Lord knows, I need a little reboost.

  8. Yay! Hope this is the (re)jumpstart that you need! :) miss you tons!
