Oprah Show to Re-Air


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have not got to post this any sooner, I have been taking the kids camping. Well The Producer from the Oprah Show called and said they will re-air the show once again. To be honest we did take a bit of a beating on the show for those who did not get to see it. Cassie held her own though and defended ALL BANDSTERS!. For those who know us and everyone we have met at the OCC know that Cassie's done fantastic and Cassie her dad and I made the right decision for her to have the surgery. If you look at the OCC pictures you will see Cassie is a proven success! But when we did go on the Oprah Show we were not told how many other guests would be on the show so it gave us limited time on speaking the facts about the OCC and getting more into detail. For those who watched the show and went to the message boards, the board crashed from all the feed back which was good and bad.

But I want to express how important it is that you get all your scheduling in because when this airs again and for those beautiful obese people who did not know that the OCC existed will see the show and will be calling and making appoitments like crazy. You can always book and then change your appointment if need be, but just incase I wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Also on the show we were not told that Dr. Oz would be on there until the last minute. You will see how little of knowledge he has on the LapBand and you will see Cassie fight the fight for all Bandsters. I am so proud of her and her belief in the LapBand and her belief to help other teens. As for me, as like all of you I was told to go back in time to talk about what it was like taking Cassie into a foreign country. There are a lot of edits also on the tape , especially with Dr. Ortiz. When taping there was a lot more said and a lot more controversy but they cut it out.

I think I will contact the Oprah show, and urge EVERYONE who feels strongly about what's said, to do the same thing.

Additionally, I will RECOMMEND that OPRAH herself stop her silly yo-yo-ing and GET BANDED. Dr. Ortiz told me on my surgery day he offered her a freebie. (Dawnie..... be careful here... :P)

Oprah will change for life, as we all have.

DO IT EVERYONE>>>> CONTACT THE OPRAH SHOW after it airs.... (then blame it on evette or paulabee)

Do you know when this will re-air so I can set my DVR to record? Please let us know ASAP!! Where do I also go to see Cassie's pictures? I think that it is wonderful for teens to do this. There is so much pressure in high school, let alone being overweight. This was a big decision for your family and the right one!! Good luck =D>
