getting started



I have 1 wonderful, healthy little boy that is almost 3 years old. He came 8 weeks early because of high blood pressure. He weighed 2lbs 13oz at birth. Being a premie is such a risk for the child. I really want another child, but must get in control of my blood pressure. So I am starting this journey with the lap band to enable me to be a healthy mom for the child I have & for the child I want.
