  1. Well surgery went well, gas pain is manageable. Getting excited about my future. Trying to fall asleep on 1st night, with a smile on my face is proving difficult. Just so very happy I made this commitment. Keep smiling and know you are worth it.

      Home now, doing much better in my own bed. Had one terrible day in the hospital when I was given a juice by either a student nurse or cna. The juice had sugar in it and after one sip, I stopped and told the nurse on duty. She apologized but within 30 minutes I was running to the restroom, I got chills, severe cramps. After 5 hours and 9 times to the toilet, it started to recede. I learned a valuable lesson and I will absolutely make sure I look at every label and watch exactly what I eat. I don't want that ever to happen again. Other than that I am doing great. I am able to drink my 64 oz of fluids a day on day 5 post op, so excited to switching to thicker fluids. Keep y'all posted.
