my GASTRIC BYPASS surgery is tomorrow!!!

hey there family & friends!

just wanted to check in & see how your summer is going...hope yall have been having as much fun in the sun as me and the little boys! corbin has his mommy's skin and is already sporting a pretty good tan...brendan's getting a little darker, but i'm mainly just having to keep a lot of sunblock on him to keep him from roasting...

tomorrow is a big day in the banks household...i am having gastric bypass surgery!! for some of you that i haven't talked to in a while, you might be like "what in the world?!?"...but this is something that i have been praying about for about a year...and once i started praying faithfully about it, God opened the doors for me...i have had no trouble getting insurance approval, surgery dates, kelly's permissive tdy (which gives him time to take off from work to take care of me), childcare for the boys, etc...

our good friend, drew, has let us borrow his laptop to use in the hospital so my plans are to keep you updated...i'll probably just post updates on the blog instead of email...and that would be the best place to leave us your prayers & comments...

i'm soooo hoping to get caught up on my blogging while in the hospital or at least while i'm recovering, but i guess that all depends on how i'm feeling...

i'm not ready to post pics now, but maybe in a few months i'll post some before & after pics....

thank you in advance for praying for me/us... we are looking forward to seeing all the ways that the Lord will work in our lives.

blessings to you and yours!!!
we love you!
candace
p.s....i forgot to mention that the surgery is at abilene regional hospital at like 11am tomorrow, june 25th...dr frazee (a wonderful christian man) is my surgeon.

Candace!

I perused your pictures-- Your photos are so quality-- and it's obvious that life is full and satisfying!

It was funny, as I was reading your post, it was like you read my mind when you acknowledged that people with whom you haven't spoken to in a while would be thinking... "What in the world?!" =) But it sounds like it's the right move for you.

Loved the pictures you took of your floor just prior to the new carpet going in-- with scripture written on the floor. Love that!

I just started a blog myself-- in an attempt to keep family and friends posted of Incorvaia happenings... plus it's kind of cathartic, I think... a way to scrap-book that requires less manual labor and effort =)

Check in when you have time:

Abundant Blessings.
