    Today is the big day

    surgery is coming up and I want to wish you a safe and speedy recovery so you can get back to your babies
  2. I've been fine this whole journey (psych eval,special test and etc) but when I dropped off my son at my parents he's 3 it finally hit me I'm having surgery today at 11am and I'm so nervous not nervous because of the recovery but nervous that it will take me a while before I can pick up my toddler and that is killing me even though he's pretty independant for a 3 Yr old he still likes me to carry him like a baby to his bed im just a ball of emotions right now

    hey I'm doing pretty good thank god! My doctor said I could start off soft foods this weekend so I'm adjusting to that. So far so good I just have to get used to taking smaller bites and no big gulps because then I start balling with a tummy ache. Ty for asking how are you doing?

    Iodine

    Am I the only struggling to take this iodine off my skin. My surgery was 4/15 and everyday I try to take it off little by little today I couldn't take it and cleaned most of it off with alcohol and cotton balls. Also to make things worse my doctor put gauze and clear film over my dermabond I tried taking one one off to see the smallest incision and of course the gauze is stuck any suggestions guys?

    Iodine

    Thank you but I got most of it. It had a awful smell (dry iodine) and it was sticky I couldn't. As far as dermabond I'll leave that alone
