Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

We leave here at 645am on our way to San Diego. To say I'm feeling the jitters would be an understatement. I'm not rethinking this decision. I'm just nervous. We're currently packing and trying to figure out how to only use 1 checked bag for the 2 of us. Hubby likes to overpack. I'm a little concerned we're going to be screwing around with last minute luggage changes at 5 in the morning....
