    Well for the one's that was following the surgery I had a Dr. app. Thur.
    and had some good new's . I have lost 39 lb. in two weeks and two days. My blood pressure was 124/72, and my body mass went from 61 to 54. They said that they would like to see that down to 40, I will get there eventually. I have had to give myself 2 shots a day for 2 weeks, I am down to 2 more shots and I am done. And I guess I am still a wuss, it is still not any easier now than it was the first day. Although being scared of needles does not help. If you have ever seen a dog crapping peach seeds, that is about how bad I am shaking, when I give myself a shot. I am looking forward to my turkey dinner for Christmas. It just happens to be 2 oz. of turkey in a baby food jar.

    First of all,THANK's every one. I had some tomato soup for lunch, man it was GOOD . It was only 2 oz., but it was good. Big Dave, to answer your question ,it will be 3-4 more weeks before I can eat any solid FOOD. Then it will be some soft food like salmon or mashed potatoes
