All the best to you! Please let us know how you are doing what it is really like post surgery. June 8th is my sleeve date! Funny the program I am in does not require the liquid diet pre-op but post-op. They say walk, walk, walk post surgery to get rid of gas and to heal. We only get one night stay in hospital then they send us on our way. You are probably much younger than I so you might bounce right back! Okay here is to your new life just like a butterfly spreading new wings. If you are reading this in pain you are probably thinking shut up you crazy lady lol. Just kidding. Alright keep us posted. Prayers for a speedy recovery :D -Michele

My 5/18 sleeve update...

I was sleeve at 8am, suppose to have been noon, but I didn't get that call until 630am that morning from OR nurse that they moved my time up 4 hours...ugh, made mad dash to hosp, was in OR by 820... woke up by 10am in recovery, it took 1 hour to take my gallbladder and sleeve me... "shrunk liver 2016" really does work...my M.D. said he should YouTube my surgery for VSG , anyway up to a room by 1030am with pain pump and lidocaine Patches on my my scars to help with pain also... up walking by 2pm, hit pain pump up by 4pm, I/s every hr, up by 6pm, up by 9pm...always take a hit of pain pump when walking assisted... sleep on/off whenever the iv alarms &nursing would allow... up by 6am today, walking, 830 leak test... contrast was not bad, BUT was allowed to drink thru a straw... by 930am the start of day 1-2 of liquids only , goal 48oz along with my 1000cc bag of Water... (b4 being discharge hold on to those iv fluids until you walk outdoor) pain pump discontinued at 1100????, oh btw on 6 oz h20 by now (1-2 oz a hr) yes it's hard but I push thru... D/C from hospital by 230,got home sore, made me a Percocet and raglan cocktail with 2 oz water... setting my timer at every hour 1-2oz Water with walking... I'm going to get me a t-shirt made with"i survived liquid diet 2016"... it's funny cuz I didn't even worry about a scale the whole time

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
