Well, it looks like I’m about to embark on a journey that could change life as I know it. Today, my first meeting with the Dietician was scheduled. Then I meet with the Surgeon, then a Counselor, then I can determine my surgery date. Here’s how round 1 went:
So my original appointment with the Dietician was this morning at 8a. I arrived on time. They’re doing construction so I wasn’t able to go into the entrance that I thought was correct. I walked into the front lobby, asked where I can register to see my Dietician, they directed me, I registered, got my forms, got a bracelet, was walked to my Dietician. Done.
My Dietician said, oh, are you supposed to be meeting with a weight loss institute Dietician? Yes. Well they checked you in as an outpatient through the hospital instead of the institute. Grab things. Walk to China. Arrive at the weight loss institute registration desk where Snarky Mc-I-Was-Here-At-8-Where-Were-You-Bitcherson shook her head at me and said we’d need to reschedule since it was now 8:30 and I’ve missed my appointment.
Me, overheated and on the verge of tears.
The Dietician saw me, grabbed me, rescheduled me for tomorrow since I’m already going to be there meeting with the surgeon. Was very friendly.
Walked back to original registration desk to make sure I wasn’t going to be billed for the registration / check in that was never supposed to happen. Walked to my car in East Geezus.
I may have already lost weight.
