July 8th!! I can't believe it is here. We are cleaning and cleaning and cleaning the house for a sterile arrival back home! Trying to forget that ill be sleeved by now tomorrow! If I think abiut it too long I might cry. Scared and excited! I worry abiut my girls so much. I know the chances of me dying are slim but they are there. I know my chances of dying witjout the surgery are absolute. I almost died after having my eight year old. I developed congestive heart failure. The thought of her without a mommy was traumatic. My second daughter is adopted from China. I just love them so much and hate to put my life at risk. But in this case it is necessary. Much prayers for all going under tomorrow!

Just think, what a wonderful gift you are giving them both in a new, healthier mommy! I am so excited that I'm sitting here in awe looking at my suitcase after I started this process a long 8 months ago. It's finally here! Wow....

cleaning the house for a sterile arrival back home

hopingtolose2013

sterile arrival.???.........are you bringing a baby home??? ;)

kindof i guess...........

a new little baby tummy ;)

as far as you having feelings/fear of death???

you would have to stay inside 24/7 to make sure nothing happened to you "out there" ^_^

all surgeries have complications :angry:

things should/hopefully go without a hitch during and after WLS

"from my lips to Gods ears!!!"

you'll be holding and loving those girls very soon

as OP said - the kids and you will be so much happier, that you have regained your health, and are able to be with them in better health

good luck to you tomorrow

don't be too nervous during surgery

suggestion: how about closing your pretty eyes and taking a nap while the docs do their thing!! :lol:

speedy recovery

you are on your way to a healthier, happier, longer life with the sleeve!!!!

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
