I just enrolled in Nursing School pending financial aid! I also got started with Vocational Rehabilitation as well! Both of these happened this morning! I enrolled at IVTECH State College in the 2 year RN program! Might have to take some refresher classes, but that's ok! I'm planning on starting in this Fall! Wish me luck!

My long term goal is to get my RN cert. and go into a specialty of Bariatric care. After I'm established in a job, I'll be continuing on to Nurse Practitioner as my next goal! My first primary goal though is to graduate from the RN program with honors! This will take hard work, but nothing that's worth it is easy!

Of course anything that is worth it is not easy to obtain. Just keep this determination going and you will make it. My friend you will succeed and I say that as a fact. I feel it in my bones. Just keep out there striving for that ultimate goal.

Your friend always

Damn Dude, if you came into my hospital room in the middle of the night and told me to take my pills, I'd take em.

I guess I should intro myself.
I think I found your blog off of a MTBR post. I'm a light clyde MTB'r. Obesity runs in my family so I'm interested in success stories, especially involving biking. I've had a few family members have the stomach stapling procedure done (I think this it what you had done?) I'm in no way comparing myself to you but I remember the feeling when I went from 315 to 220. You must be feeling great.

Keep it up buddy.

Actually Tom, I had a Roux-N-Y procedure. It involves cutting the stomach into two pieces, cutting the small intestine 3 feet down. Joining the lower part of the small intestine to the top section of the stomach. Forming a pouch from the top part about the size of an egg. Then rejoining the top 3 feet of intestine another 3 ft down and closint off the top of the bottom section of the stomach. It's a bit more involved than the old stapling procedure, but done laporoscopically, so no huge incision to heal! Just 4 entry incisions about an inch long. It has a lot faster recovery time as well!
