Gastric Sleeve

On Wednesday, July 17, I had weight loss surgery.  Specifically, I had a sleeve gastrectomy procedure.  I wanted to have a full gastric bypass, which is the scary one that rewires all your guts, but it’s also the surgery that has the highest success rate of sending diabetes into remission.  My surgeon strongly cautioned me...

Looking at Game of Thrones (#Boffo)
