On our way home (the whole 3 minute trip), we briefly discussed what had just happened and I asked him if he thought I should look into gastric bypass surgery and he definitely agreed looking into it was a good idea. The choices as I saw it were going to Traverse City (1.5 hours from home), Grand Rapids (3 hours from home) or Ypsilanti (5 hours from home). They all had their pluses and minuses. I now knew people who had been to each place each of whom highly recommended where they had gone.
I said I wanted to remain open minded and wanted to find out more information about all three places and others as well. Bob agreed.
