I'll post results when I have them as to what is going on, or at least, what he thinks is going on.
However, it will involve in some way of him saying, "You need to lose some weight and get more exercise."
It always involves that saying, even if a needle got shoved in my eye - "Well, we've wrapped it up pretty good to stop the bleeding, but it also wouldn't hurt for you to lose some weight and get some exercise to help with that eye."
Which only brings me closer to the resolution of having that gastric bypass stuff done. About a week ago I met an old friend of mine I hadn't seen in a while. I'd heard talk that he'd had it done and looked completely different and they were right. I still could recognize him, but he looked so much better than before. Said he felt just as good as he looked. It isn't so much about the look for me, it's become more the health (especially in light of recent events) and getting rid of something that has bothered me since I was in the 3rd grade.
Anyway, ebay dude finally got in touch with me. I should have it here pretty soon. No doubt after the holidays, I'm sure.
