I am attending another conference! I went to the WLSFA conference in Vegas and I loved it so much that I am off to Phoenix in August! (I hope the air conditioning works well! Haha!)
This is supposed to be an awesome conference for pre-op WLS, post-op WLS, and even support people. :) I hope to see you there!
