So it was yesterday and I totally missed getting to blog about it. Yesterday, was my oldest son's birthday - he turned 11. But it wasn't a very great day for him, poor thing woke up with strep throat. So needless to say I spent two hours getting him to the dr. - strep test, flu test, antiobiotic shot (so we could still do his party this weekend out of town) and then the waiting period to make sure there was no adverse reaction to the shot. What a bummer way to spend his b-day! But he is feeling much better and we are taking him and some friends to Charlottesville, VA this weekend to the UVA/Va Tech Basketball game. Should be fun!!

Okay - now to the good stuff:

Highest Weight 331 (August of 2009 ish)

Pre-Op Diet Start Weight 311.6

Surgery Weight 300

Wait for it, Wait for it......
