    I'm less than 320 for the first time in many many years. I honestly cannot remember when. The lowest I can remember being is 325 back in 2015, but less than 320!?! I'm just over three weeks post-op and I'm down a total of 64.2 pounds lost since June 29, 2018, when I first saw the surgeon.

    I decided to stay in town for a couple of days to make sure I did not have to drive 4 hours to the emergency room if there was an issue. So good so far... I'll be heading home tomorrow and getting my dog out of puppy jail in the afternoon. (-:

    My small bowel seemed to be asleep last night but it appears that it may have woken up and is now functioning like it should. I may be able to be discharged tomorrow (Sunday) or hopefully by Monday!

    Surgery went well and I'm so far able to tolerate drinking water and eating SF jello. I think I'm finally out of the fog of anesthesia drugs. The pain is less than I was expecting, compared to what I remember of the surgeries last year.

    I weigh less than 350# for the first time in over a year (naked, on my unofficial scale at home)! I am using the medical office scale at work as my interim official scale (until I get back to my surgeon's office) and I weighed 351# this morning. This is a big milestone for me, since I was stalled for a while in the pre-op phase at 352#.

    Also playing at the concert are Behemoth, Testament, Lamb of God, and Anthrax. I have VIP access for Lamb of God and Anthrax, which means I will be able to stand on the side of the stage for the first three songs for LoG and the first four for Anthrax!

    I got the word yesterday from my surgeon my CT scan of my liver shows no damage and I am negative for portal hypertension. He said if I had portal hypertension that he would not operate on me. So, I'm in! Onward and upward! I'm down 30 pounds as of today and I'm 29 days out from surgery. This is a great day!
