I was sleeved on 06/20/2014 thanks to a grant from the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America. This date changed my life and made me feel like a new person. Before surgery I wasn’t able to live life as a 30 yr old I felt like I was 90. My rheumatoid arthritis was out of control and my fibromyalgia flare-ups were becoming impossible to live with. I had trouble with daily task and missed out on doing things with my kids. Now here I am a little over 2 months out and I feel like a new person. I took my kids to a huge zoo and was able to walk for miles without stopping. I was able to keep up with my children and not have to listen to hold on mom has to stop AGAIN. I went to an amusement park and rode every ride there! To some this may not seem like a big deal but 3 months ago I wouldn’t have been able to even fit in some of the rides because of the bar not being able to lock. The rides that I would have fit on I wouldn’t have been able to get on due to my joint pain and medical problems. These are just 2 victories for me I could go on forever about how good I feel now. I have gone down 3 sizes in my clothes and I am no longer afraid to wear shorts in public! I can’t wait to see how my life is a year from now if I already feel this great not even 3 months out! Thank you so very much WLSFA and Dr. Merriman for giving me a new life! ~ Heather Hooker
