Tonight's agenda

Tonight I have a sleep study.

This is one of those things that I have avoided for years. Since I was always overweight, the sleep study has been recommended to me over and over. But I never did it, until now.

After being in the hospital for a week, I decided that it was time to put all health issues on the table. So I have a new policy: I keep all my appointments, do what they tell me and take all the prescriptions as directed.

Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause depression, car crashes, high blood pressure, heart disease, memory problems and headaches. More info here.

So since I am not done with my time on this Earth, I shall report for my sleep study tonight.

Welcome to the Ganey Bypass!

I am working on losing weight and decided to start a blog to keep interested people up to date on what I'm doing. So why am I calling it "The Ganey Bypass?"

Well, people that lose a lot of weight frequently undergo a procedure called gastric bypass. Since I've decided to try doing it myself one last time, I came up with the name Ganey Bypass. And it stuck.

More posts to come!
