Unfortunately I have had other operations around the holidays and am actually planning on having my abdominal reconstruction right before Christmas. I know it will be tough, but my family completely understands why I need to do it then and it gets me one step closer to getting on with my life.

I think as long as people know what is going on, as much as you feel like sharing with them, they will understand.

Good luck with it.

Charlotte here....post surgery 7 months plus. My surgery was Nov. 10, 2014, discharged as scheduled. I had no qualms about having it so near the holidays because for Thanksgiving it's just hubby and I and for Christmas we have lunch with my oldest bonus daughter and her family. I don't want to scare anyone, but 6 days after surgery I was back in the hospital for pleural effusion complications and wasn't discharged until 12/6 so Thanksgiving was spent in the hospital on liquids. Fortunately, hubby was able to get a really good T-Day dinner from the cafeteria that day so we were at least together and that's all that mattered. The majority of our holidays are non-traditional anyway so this was no big deal. We did have Christmas lunch with my bonus daughter, SIL, and grandson, I just ate very little, but sure did enjoy the family time.

Make the holidays about family, friends and being together and NOT about food. Hard to do, I know, but it is possible.

Good luck to you all on your journey!! You won't regret it......I certainly don't!

I'm having mine at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center in Mooresville. They became a center of distinction about 6 months ago and that is where my doctor works out of!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
