2 years ago I told my wife that I was transgender. Over the course of the next few weeks we did research saw doctors and started the process for me to reassign my gender.
I'm off to see the Wizard!!
Over the last two years I've had countless people Support me, pray for me and just be there when I needed to vent, cry or bounce ideas off of. Without each and everyone of you I would not be where I am today and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Your support has not only prepared me for surgery but it has also prepared me for the future.
Earlier this week I was told that I had gotten the support needed for surgery. I reached out the Surgeon I have been communicating with and they were able to secure me a surgery spot at 7am on Monday January 11th! This week has been a whirlwind of emails, forms and pre-op lab work. Tomorrow Alison and I will head to Ft Lauderdale for my pre-op appointment and consultation. Then Monday morning at like 3am we will leave Orlando for surgery. We will return Tuesday after I spend a night resting at New Beginnings.
I am very excited and completely ready to take this next step in my transition. To me this is the big step I have been waiting for, for years. I will finally be able to feel like me and match! Over the next 3 weeks I will recover at home and rest. I return to work February 1st and will start my race training then and finally be able to run without binding, I'll be able to breath, to move easier and my back will no longer be in the constant pain.
The surgeon estimates that I will be losing between 15-20lbs on Monday. Once that's off, world you better look out!! I am going to be unstoppable. It will be very easy for me to work out, run and live again.
Once again thank you, each and everyone of you for all of your support, weather it be monetary, emotionally and even physically. You have all been with me through the times I've wanted to cry and have rejoiced with me over even the smallest moves forward. Once I'm healed and in proper shape I'm gonna throw one hell of a party and you are all invited!
