I'm sleeved! I am still in the hospital. I arrived at 6:15am this morning the nurses for me ready spoke with the dr and anesthesiologist. Then got wheeled back at 7:30 for surgery. Woke up about 930 real groggy but no real pain. So far just some discomfort but not too bad. I did have a loratab a few hours ago and I think it's wearing off but will probably wait till visiting hours are over and take another then so I can hopefully sleep tonight. I go home tomorrow around noon so they say. Right now I can get up and walk around, use the restroom etc. and just in case this is kinda all over the place I did mention I was on pain medication right. :-) will update again after I get home.

Michelle - no "trouble" with warm liquids. Started out with ice chips and after a few hours my sleeve decided it didn't like those anymore. I started to dry heave, I didn't actually throw up but it was very uncomfortable so I switched to warm tea. So warm is better than cold for me right now anyways.

Everyone - thank you so much for the well wishes. I feel really good except my back hurts I think either from the gas or the bed. More likely the bed and laying in it after surgery. I've been up walking around and standing in my room for the past 6-7 hours. But keep in mind I had a bad back coming into the hospital so backaches are nothing new for me. Just received my dose of nightly medication, blood thinner, shot for my back and allergy (Claritin) medication. Hoping to get some rest now that all of my company has gone home. I was told hospital has visiting hours but as it turns out my husband could have stayed overnight with me but we didn't plan for it so I sent him home. I'm comfortable that if I need something I can get up and get around to do whatever I need or get the nurse.

So for me so far (knock on wood) this has been a very easy surgery. Just a note my incisions are really black and blue but they aren't painful.

      Surgery is set for 10/4/21. At this point I haven't had any coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, or caffeine in general for over a month. Too bad it just hit pumpkin spice season! I'm missing my coffee!

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
