Made it to Mexicali, surgery in the morning



Recommended Posts

Well, we made the trip to San Diego and then on to Mexicali. My flight was an hour late so I was so worried that the van would leave without me. Of course they waited for me.

We did all our preop tests today. They actually weren't bad at all. They drew blood, did x rays and a ekg. We met with the anesthesiologist first and then Dr. Aceves. I loved them both. They were very detailed about what to expect and what is expected of us. Had lots of paperwork to fill out. We were allowed to go out to dinner tonight after a full day of fasting. Needless to say, I ate to much. I was starved by the time we had dinner around 6pm.

The hotel is very nice and the restaurant here is fantastic.

I met Brenda and her mother. Great people. We actually had dinner together tonight.

Tomorrow morning Ernesto will pick us up at 7am to head to the hospital for surgery. Surprisingly I'm not nervous at all. They did give us an antibiotic we are to take tonight and a pill to help us sleep.< /p>

I'll post more tomorrow after surgery.

Wish me Luck and all prayers appreciated.

I'm still waiting in line for surgery. I wasn't the first taken in and it looks like we have a full house here. Two other ladies had surgery yesterday and we meet them in the hall when we arrived. Just found out I'm going to be the 4th in line today. Brenda just got her happy pill which means she is next in line. I'll post again after surgery. I probably won't be out till late this evening.

Just remember as soon as you can, walk, walk, walk!! You heal faster and it cuts back on the amount of gas you have.

Good luck and happy losing!

Thanks for all your wells wishes. I think I was the last one sleeved because I didn't get back to my room until after 6pm. I walked once last night before going to bed. Surgery went very well and no hernia which I expected might be the case. Brenda had hers before me and I think she's doing great. I'm not in a lot of pain, mostly just estremely sore. They did do the spinal shot, but by the time they do that to you, you are just about totally out of it and don't feel a thing. So don't fret about it ladies. They do this because it kicks in about 2 hours after surgery after everything wears off from the surgery and keeps you comfortable.

I'll write more later.

Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.
