I was on the evening news!

My 15 minutes of fame has come and gone.

While I was at work this morning, I got a call from the coordinator at my surgeon's practice.  "Did I want to be interviewed on the channel 12 news today?"

With all the buzz going around about the FDA approval for banding on lower BMI patients....the local news wanted to interview a lap band patient and lap band surgeon.

Stay tuned...I might see if the link is available and post it here for you all.


  1. WOW! How cool?!? I really hope you can find the link to it, I would love to see it and I'm sure I'm not the only one! Congrats on being such a role model and letting your voice be heard!

  2. Of course we would love to see it!!! That is awesome. It seems to be alot easier here in Australia to get banded...

  3. Can I have your autograph? :)

  4. Would LOVE to watch it!!

  5. I want your autograph too!

  6. That must have been really exciting to be interviewed like that. Thanks for visiting my blog...I am now following you. Nice to meet another Oregonian......especially one from California.

  7. look at you, prime time news!

    Love the pearls!!!


  8. Karin!

    You were so poised, so honest...... what a wonderful news story, I bet you helped a bunch of people think about getting the band!
